Honey bees are struggling in Howard County and they need your help. If things aren't changed, the current zoning laws will squeeze out the honey bee from Howard County. This is because the current zoning law makes it unlawful for the overwhelming majority of beekeepers to keep bees on their property.
Don't Squeeze the Bees was created by a few concerned citizens (beekeepers and non-beekeepers) in Howard County to educate people about the importance of honey bees and to advocate on behalf of the honey bees and beekeepers at the local, state and federal level. Our goal is to reach out to people who are not beekeepers that want to protect this amazing insect from being outlawed in Howard County.
We're doing our part by teaching about the importance of honey bees and beekeepers, being visible at events in the county, and increasing visibility to the issue through our website and our bumper sticker campaign. But we still need your help! We need you to get involved by writing your county councilperson about the importance of this issue, and by spreading the word by joining our bumper sticker campaign and following us on Facebook and Twitter.
