Why do we need Bee-Friendly Zones?

Bees of all species, as well as other insects, are declining in numbers because of the increased use of agricultural chemicals, the destruction of their natural habitat and the accidental importation of diseases and parasites.

Bees are very important to the health of the natural world, especially wild flowers. They also play a vital role in the pollination of many of our fruit and vegetables - without bees, our diet would be very dull and lacking in many key nutrients.

Bee-Friendly Zones provide safe places for bees - and other insects - to live and forage. If we can create a lot of BFZs, we can make a big difference to their health and their numbers - and their long-term survival.

"Our own research indicates that systemic pesticides occur in pollen and nectar in much greater quantities than has been previously thought, and that interactions among pesticides occurs often and should be of wide concern."
