There is a lot of "buzz" on bees and other pollinators in the news. People are interested and want to know what they can do to help the cause.
The Ohio State University (OSU) Bee Lab is your go to source for information about bees, as well as other pollinators. Feel free to share this resource with others including clientele, co-workers, friends, and family. The more people are aware and educated about bees and other pollinators, they typically want to help!
If you haven't checked out the Bee Lab online, you have to do it! The website is host to factsheet and bulletins, recorded webinars, and a calendar of upcoming events. Many educational programs are offered online as well through the Bee Lab. There is a wealth of information that is updated on a regular basis. Be sure the site is a "favorite" and check back often.
The website can be found online at: http://u.osu.edu/beelab/
