Burt’s Bees has released a new app that can help you find and destroy bees, and other pollinators, in your home.
The app, called Bees and Bets, is a web-based service that lets you scan a list of your existing bee colonies to identify the types of pollinators and pests that may be in your area.
If a bee is detected on your list, the app will tell you if the colony has been infested with the pests that are present.
Then, if you choose to remove the bee from the list, it will automatically be returned to the pollinator pool.
“We want you to take action to protect the pollinators you love,” the company says in a blog post.
Bees and Bats will be available for iOS and Android devices on March 1.
More from The American Conservatives: In recent years, beekeepers across the U.S. have been facing the threat of declining bee populations, particularly after the use of neonicotinoids was banned in the U of S. Many beekeepers are using chemicals to help protect their colonies from a virus called Colony Collapse Disorder, which can wipe out entire colonies.
In February, the U,S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA) released a plan to ban the use and sale of neonics in U.N. member states.
Neonics are the non-chemical pesticides used to kill certain bee species, including the honeybee.
Last year, the European Union banned neonics because they can kill certain bees, but the European Commission has now revised its position, arguing that they have been proven to be safe.
