Did You Hear? If Bugs Die, We Die Too

February 22, 2019

If you shudder at the thought of creepy crawlies pause before you consider crushing the tiny creature. Recent reports have shown that despite how annoying we find insects, they might be a necessary part of keeping us alive. 

This story has been a hot topic of conversation, at least among Jacksonville bug aficionados. (Yes, we exist!) Yesterday, our beekeeper was invited to speak about local bees and bugs on WJCT, our local NPR station, with host Melissa Ross of First Coast Connect. We were joined by Jaret C. Daniels, an Associate Professor, Lepidoptera Research and Insect Conservation at the University of Florida, for some great conversation. Our community asked some amazing questions and has taken some great initiatives to protect the local bee and insect population.

If you weren't able to tune in, no worries, you can listen right now
