We need to give bees all the help they can get:

The trouble is that we are not necessarily being very helpful - as the current debate over neonicotinoids shows:

There is more research out, which makes it difficult for the layperson - and legislator - to know exactly what to do:

The 38 Degrees campaign group have got a petition going:
Michael Gove: protect our bees
This is incredible. Already over 170,000 of us have
signed the petition calling on Michael Gove to protect our bees.  We'll
it be handing it soon - and the more of us that add our name, the louder our
call will be.
 38 Degrees: Michael Gove: protect our bees
We've got a huge
opportunity to help save our bees for good. Big corporations want to spread
bee-killing pesticides across UK fields. These pesticides are temporarily banned
in the UK on some crops, but if we want to stand up for our buzzing friends
we need to get these chemicals banned on all crops. 
vote coming up to extend the current ban, protecting bees from even more
pesticides.  And Environment Minister Michael Gove decides whether the UK
will vote to ban these pesticides.
That's where we come in. Lobbyists
for big chemical companies will be whispering in Michael Gove's ear, telling
him to vote against the bees.  But there are hundreds of thousands of us,
so a huge petition could persuade him to put our bees before business profits.
Bees pollinate three
quarters of the world’s crops - apples, strawberries, onions, carrots, and
many, many more. We wouldn’t last long without them. But the pesticides
favoured by big business, called neonicotinoids, are lethal - they scramble
their memories, and damage their navigation leaving them lost and confused. 
Our bees have been under siege since 2013 - every year chemical
companies have tried to lift the ban, threatening bees existence. But every
year 38 Degrees members have fought to keep these threats at
We’ve now got the chance to make sure the ban covers more
of Britain's fields, and keeps our bees safe for generations to come.
Michael Gove has been saying warm words about protecting our bees - so now let's
get him to turn those words into action. 
 New Scientist: Strongest evidence yet that neonicotinoids are killing bees
There are two votes coming up at the European Commission: one at the end of the
year, and one in January. The vote this year will decide whether or not the ban
on Neonicotinoids, which are currently only banned on one type of crop, should
be extended to cover all crops. The vote in January will decide whether or not
to permanently ban these pesticides. Any decision taken at these meetings will
be transferred into UK law after Brexit.
