Pollinators have been getting a lot of attention in the media lately; and, as a beekeeper, I have been answering a lot of questions. “What’s up with the bees?” they say. Well, it’s complicated. For many years the pride of every neighborhood has been the perfectly manicured and totally weed-free lawn. While this looks nice to many people, it actually is very harmful to our communities. Most of the grasses planted in these lawns are not native to our area, and they require large amounts of water to maintain.
