Sweet! Backyard Beekeeping Is Taking Off


Author(s):
Abstract:
Honeybees are in trouble nationwide. Over 90 percent of the feral bee colonies have been decimated, and the state's managed colonies have declined about 50 percent since the 1980s. Kemp examines some of the reasons for this. Pollination for crops is essential and farmers have to import colonies during the blooming season. Kemp discusses the benefits of backyard beekeeping.
