US Efforts To Protect the Honey Bee

Updated: Sunday, June 22 2014, 01:01 PM CDT

The president has announced a plan to help save America’s honey bees and other pollinators.

Pesticides and mites, among other factors, have caused the honey bee population to drop off in recent years.

Honey bees are crucial to the American food industry.

According to the White House, at least 90 commercially grown crops in North America rely on honey bee pollination.

California almond producers are especially at risk.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Agriculture will spearhead an effort to determine why honey bees, monarch butterflies and other pollinators are dwindling and find ways to boost their conservation.
