CALL TO ACTION: Beekeepers Need You!

Chinese Tallow has taken a hit from USDA-APHIS. A movement to put an end to Chinese Tallow is underway. It is up to us to stop it. The loss of these trees would have a devastating impact on beekeepers in the southern states. The USDA-APHIS has opened an environmental assessment on releasing two non-native insects as biocontrol agents to eradicate the Chinese Tallow tree.

USDA-APHIS has opened a comment period on this issue. It is open until February 22nd. To comment go to;

Send your comments to stress the importance of honeybees, pollinators and the beekeeping business.
