Ontario beekeepers want pesticide ban

The whole bee situation is very worrying.

If you want to create a bee-friendly space in your yard, start at Evergreen Brick Works for some native flowering plants. They also have a great selection of plant lists for different areas of Canada. If you are in the Greater Toronto Area, they have dozens of lists for our area.

Lee Valley has a good book about Native Pollinators, and they sell native bee houses. Learn more about why bees are important, and

what you can do in your own space to help all native pollinators, visit the David Suzuki Foundation.
