June 20: Pollinator Week

June 20th marked the beginning of Pollinator Week! When people think of bees, they think of honey. In reality, though, most honeybee colonies are kept for their pollination services. Bees are like living, buzzing gold to many farmers- truckloads of bees are moved across the US every season to provide this essential service to almonds, cranberries, stonefruit and many other crops.
