JJ’s daily GOOD NEWS post!
Population levels of more than 700 North American bee species are declining as habitat loss and pesticide use continue at a breakneck pace. Among other reasons the insects play an important economic role as pollinators helping sustain agricultural production.
Here’s the good news!
Richmind Hill’s Hillcrest Mall just North of Toronto has installed beehives on roof to fight declining bee population The two hives are part of the mall’s green roof, and have the capacity to house at least 10,000 bees each. They’re expected to produce about 200 small jars of honey, which the mall management will probably donate as part of its community outreach or use it to create an indoor honey market
