"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man." - Albert Einstein
The busy little bee not only makes honey, it's vital to pollinating many plants, flowers and crops that provide over one third of the food supply to the planet. If all the recent reports of the bee population dwindling are true, then we could be in a bit of a situation.
One simple way you can help restore and provide a home to nature's official workforce, is to hang one of these cool new Birch Bee Logs from a tree in your yard or garden. This decorative bee house is made from natural birch timber, natural cane tubes and seagrass and attracts highly pollinating solitary bees like the Blue Orchard Bee. Unlike ornery social bees like Honeybees, solitary bees are either stingless or sting only in self-defense, so just leave them alone and admire them as they do their job. Even if this single bee house doesn't save the Earth from hunger, at least your garden will flourish in the meantime.
