Helping honey bees survive by installing bee houses in your municipality

North American Honey Bee populations are currently in a critical period known as the "Colony Collapse Disorder" struggling to survive through mite infestations and harmful pesticides such as neonicotinoid.
In Québec alone, last spring, the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists reported that 12 429 bee hives were not able to survive due to our cold winters and problems mentioned above.
Helping bees find a safe place to survive against the harsh weather, pesticides and mite infestation will increase its population, and help our green spaces grow plants and flowers naturally at no cost. Honey bees are pollinators that do so much for us : maintaining our biodiversity as well as providing us with honey and valuable nutrition (vegetables and fruits). To help them, simply building bee houses with reusable materials can be a great first step.
On a grander scale, without honey bees, our crops will have a hard time growing; animals depending on plants will suffer and our fruits and vegetable will become scarcer. We, humans, depend on honey bees more than we think. Let's help them before we realize it is too late.
