We at Amber Freda believe in creating completely bee-friendly gardens. By only using organic pesticides and fertilizers, we hope to contribute in some small way to a healthier, more sustainable planet for both our bee friends and our fellow human beings. We don’t want our clients, their pets and children, or our team members exposed to dangerous toxic chemicals, either. We believe that making conscious decisions such as buying and supporting organic products helps make our world a better place for all of us.
GLORYBEE.COM has calculated that without bees to pollinate other plants and vegetables, we risk losing these following produce:
- Cucumbers and pickles
- Brussel sprouts
In a sampling of honey collected around the world, the majority of samples were found to be contaminated with neonicotinoid pesticides
Nearly 200 honey samples were tested, with neonicotinoids found in 75 percent of them
Forty-five percent of the samples contained two or more of the pesticides, while 10 percent contained four or five
In separate research, queen bees exposed to neonicotinoids were 26 percent less likely to lay eggs
