“Pollination Ecology – How Can We Help Bees?”
Larry Dapsis, Entomologist from the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension returned via Zoom to Highfield Hall, this time to talk BEES!
Honeybees, both locally and nationally have been suffering catastrophic losses. In our program last week, Larry Dapsis reviewed honey bee biology and the factors responsible for our environmental problem pertaining to the bee population.
Larry reviewed the state of wild pollinators like bumble bees and the things residents can do to help them. Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat require pollination. Certain foods will not be available to us in the future state unless we support the pollination of bees and their colonies. The current situation with murder hornets in the US was discussed as well.
