Saturday’s documentary highlights buzz about bees

‘MORE THAN HONEY’, a documentary about the plight of the bees will be showing at the Regent Theatre on Saturday, January 10th at 2 p.m. After the movie, local beekeeper Gavin North of Honey Pie Herbals will be available to answer questions.

There is some good news to report as well.  Recently, the Ontario government  announced that it will be reducing the use of neonicotinoid insecticides (neonics for short) on 80 per cent of corn and soy crops over the next two growing seasons.   This will allow farmers and seed suppliers to obtain seed stock that has not been treated with these chemicals.

We can be proud to be part of the efforts to bring this action about.  But we still have to work on the federal government to ban the use of these insecticides across the country (and to review the use of others that affect our pollinators.)

Please consider writing a letter to your MPP in support of the neonics regulations. You can also help the bees by attending the movie and supporting your local Bee Active group by purchasing a Bee-Friendly sign to put on your lawn in the spring.
