Pollination Ecology – How Can We Help Bees? Larry Dapsis, Entomologist with the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, returns via Zoom to Highfield Hall, this time to talk BEES!

Honeybees, both locally and nationally have been suffering catastrophic losses. This program will review honey bee biology and the factors responsible for this problem. In addition, we will review 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. The current situation with murder hornet in the US will be discussed.

Larry just gave us 3 STEPS to protect yourself from Ticks, currently available on our YouTube channel, if you are reading this from anyplace in Barnstable County, you need to see the video!
