Solitary bees provide an important pollination service for many agricultural crops and wildflowers. Many bee species, however, are facing range and population declines, even as the demand for bee-pollinated crops is increasing. Agricultural landscapes, such as fruit orchards and vegetable fields, have a high need for pollinators but often provide an inadequate habitat for them. Unbroken monocultures with no close natural areas may not have the abundance of floral resources and nesting sites necessary for bee pollinators. There are ways we can support robust bee populations in agricultural areas. Diversifying crops and planting wildflower hedgerows along fields can increase pollinator diversity and pollination of nearby crops. Likewise, the preservation of remaining natural habitat can support many species of bees, both solitary and social, which can then spill over into agricultural lands.View this paper.
