Native Plants for Honeybees #43

Book by Christopher Murrow

art

After the crops have stopped blooming, honeybees turn to our forests and meadows for food. Unfortunately much of this land has been replaced with strip malls and suburban homes. The lawns and landscaping that is planted there simply does not replace what once grew there. Today, hobbies beekeepers are at risk of favoring nonnative plants because, most nurseries don't sell native plants despite their benefits to the wild. Our indigenous insects heavily favor eating the foliage to our native plants, and are a vital link to the ecosystem. In this book I hope to reaffirm the case for native plants, and by favoring them as nectar plants for honeybees, the conservation of other pollinators will only come natural.
