Wyman’s of Maine Honeybee Initiative

Product-Family_v2

Long before it was publicized and long before many were concerned my husband noticed the lack of honey bees in our area.  Slowly, we started hearing news reports and it has been a concern of ours.  I was thrilled when I found that Wyman’s of Maine, is also concerned about honey bees.  Wyman’s of Maine is a producer of premium frozen fruits.

 

 

They understand that the honey bees are responsible for pollinating one third of our nations produce – including their Wild Blueberries. This is why they’re committed to saving the bees and eliminating the threat to our nation’s crops. Last month, Wyman’s of Maine surprised unassuming shoppers at a local Boston open market by dressing up street team members as honeybees to “swarm” the area. These team members passed out wildflower seeds in order to encourage the public to start growing wildflowers to build habitats for the bees.

One of the biggest detriments to the honeybee population is that they do not get enough nutrition from the plants that they pollinate, and planting wildflowers will help fix this problem. By providing a place for bees to get their nutrition, they will be better equipped to fend off disease, pathogens, and the effects of stress. As part of Wyman’s initiative towards saving the bees, we found our “swarm” to be very effective in spreading awareness and getting people to understand how they can help save the bee population.

    I have heard of the honey bee problems and it’s the first of many problems our environment faces. Kudos to Wymans of Maine for taking action.
