When it comes to landscaping, a little effort (or lack thereof!) can really help our pollinator pals and support biodiversity. In honour of #PollinatorWeek, we put together a blog including Six Easy Landscaping Tips to Benefit Pollinators. These general guidelines can be applied to any location + we added links to regional guides for planting native species 🌱🌿🌻🌵🌸. With these simple changes in habit, we can change habitats!

Get in the spirit of #PollinatorWeek by helping to contribute to biodiversity monitoring from your own backyard! 🤓 We`re excited about the free app from @iNaturalistorg, who are conducting a citizen science project on pollinator abundance and distribution in North America. Share your photos of pollinators visiting flowers—from the rarest butterfly to the most common backyard weed. Your uploads are used to help scientists better understand pollinator diversity and the flowers that support them, and contribute to scientific data repositories like the Global Biodiversity Information Facility. 🌎

Last spring, our Honey Bee Health Researcher, Dr. Heather Broccard-Bell, put together a blog exploring the important role pollinators, including honey bees, play in maintaining healthy ecosystems. With this year`s Pollinator Week theme revolving around ecosystems, we thought it would be a timely reshare. Click the 🔗 link in our bio to read Dr. Heather`s blog. 🐝

We’re getting excited for summer! ☀️😎 Our Landscaping Committee has been busy planning pollinator gardens for our head office in Trenton. Earlier this year, the whole NOD team helped by starting seeds inside for a variety of plants and vegetables. Today was perfect planting weather! 🌱 ...

Dr. Heather Brocard-Bell, our Honey Bee Health Researcher, continued her Australia adventures as a speaker at the NSW Apiarists’ Association AGM this week. 🇦🇺🌏

This talk was an informative conversation on “The Physics, Chemistry, and Pharmacology of Formic Acid in Honey Bee Hives.” Our team has a lot of information to share when it comes to varroa mite education, and we’re proud to be able to support beekeepers across the globe.

Today is World Bee Day! 🐝🌍 Let’s take the day to celebrate these incredible creatures, and all they do for our planet.

We all know honey bees for the delicious, nutrient-rich honey they create 🍯 and they are also fantastic pollinators 🌸 Bees help our Earth in 3 critical ways, they:
• Increase food security, through pollinating crops we eat
• Maintain biodiversity of plants, as some plants can only be pollinated by bees (like snapdragons!)
• Conserve ecosystem health; by maintaining biodiversity and helping plants, bees are inadvertently helping regulate climates, purifying air, and more!

We can do our part to protect and support bees by planting diverse, native plants, avoiding pesticides, and protecting wild bee colonies when possible.

Today, we thank the mighty honey bee for how it shapes our world!

Happy Earth Day! 🌎 💚 This year`s theme is `Planet vs. Plastics`, encouraging us all to rethink the plastic we use.

Plastics are often unavoidable in beekeeping, from product packaging to hive components—but there are ways we can still keep sustainability in mind. If you can`t reduce your plastic use, try to choose reusable products made with durable materials, and properly dispose of plastics when they reach the end of their life.

At NOD, we continuously strive to conserve and protect the environment—not just for bees, but for us, too! To deliver on our commitment to the environment, we have company-wide recycling and waste-management programs to minimize landfill use. We use non-GMO materials for the key ingredients to produce our compostable, eco-friendly varroa control product, Formic Pro.

Together we can help create a more sustainable future for us and our honey bees! 🐝
