Yet their populations have been disappearing at an alarming rate for nearly a decade. This puts our food system at risk.
The company's Häagen-Dazs Loves Honey Bees initiative has donated more than $1 million in pollinator research and education since 2008. In 2016, they even gave some bees a year-long home at their almond supplier's farm by installing 6.5 miles of permanent hedgerow.
Here's how you can help save the honey bees:
Plant native trees, wildflowers and shrubs to provide a home for the bees
Protect the homes the bees already have by leaving alone untidy areas of gardens, tree stumps and open sandy grounds -- all areas that the bees love
Spread the word on social media so others know about how they can take action to help
