If the bees continue to decline, so will our food supply. Without bees, the majority of our food supply will become nonexistent. A leaked document shows that the EPA has allowed a bee-toxic pesticide to be regulated despite its own scientists’ concerns.
Summer Mowing Tips
If the lawn is turning brown, not growing or seems too short, skip a week or raise the height of the cut. (Lawns should always be maintained above 3 ½ ” or higher during summer.) Even a 1/2” can have a beneficial effect. It promotes a greener, thicker and healthier lawn, helps soil retain more moisture and helps reduce weeds.
