honeybee numbers continue to fall


As honeybee numbers continue to fall, beekeepers offer ways you can help pollinators

By Rosemary Parker | Kalamazoo Gazette

Hoping bees survive

Gazette fileEllen Barnes, who with her husband runs
St. Joe Valley Apiaries in Schoolcraft, checks on newly populated bee hives recently brought back from California's almond groves. The Barnes lost 80 percent of their bees in 2005 to a die-off that researchers are still trying to solve.

Bees are in trouble, everyone can help, and it's as easy as watching the grass grow or stirring a spoonful of honey into a cup of tea.

As they regroup from staggering colony losses averaging 42 percent nationwide last year, commercial and backyard beekeepers alike are putting the call out to every backyard gardener, every suburban homeowner, every grocery shopper and restaurant patron to help keep  honeybees and other insect pollinators alive and on the job.

Homeowners can quit or cut back on the lawn chemicals and back off on the mowing, suggested Otsego beekeeper Caroline Abbott, who manages six hives and is an active member of the Kalamazoo Bee Club.

"I'm not saying you can't mow the lawn," Abbott said. "But in the spring, my yard is full of dandelions, and in the summer, it's full of clover."

Because the plants provide nutrients for honeybees and other pollinating insects, "to me that's beautiful," Abbott said.

Terry Clark Traveling to Haiti with National Pest Management Association to

Assess & Treat the Country's Pest Management Needs


LODI, Calif. (April 28, 2010) - We are all aware of the destruction caused by the major earthquake that hit Port au Prince, Haiti on January 12th.  While the country is still dealing with widespread damage to its infrastructure and health and safety issues for its people, there are other major concerns that are not often discussed - like bugs. 

The Haitian government recently called upon the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and a select group of its delegates to assist the country in dealing with pest and rodent control. Terry Clark, vice president of Clark Pest Control in Lodi, Calif., was asked to participate in this effort because of his previous work with the NPMA Board of Directors.  Terry is known to be a ‘creative thinker' and they need this type of out-of-the-box thinking to build action plans and guide the implementation of the pest management solutions in the Haiti disaster area.  

"I am thrilled at the opportunity help with this relief effort in Haiti," said Terry Clark, vice president, Clark Pest Control.  "The personal risks are there but it is important that we share the resources and technology we have with a community that truly needs our help because I know we can go over there and make a real difference."

The NPMA team is focusing on three major pest problems in the tent cities and the hospitals.  Port-au-Prince and its surrounding areas are overrun with pests including flies, rodents and cockroaches, and it is causing major health and safety concerns for the Haitian people. Yet the pest control plans must take many issues into consideration - including the heat and humidity, especially as we are nearing the onset of hurricane season.

Some of the health risks posed by the pests include the transmission of pathogens and bacteria such as E-coli and Salmonella that can result in illness and disease, increased potential for asthma attacks and respiratory distress due to cockroach and rodent allergens and food contamination.  In addition, the flies are so bad in the latrines that people are choosing not to use them and leaving their personal waste outside instead.

 "This will by far be the largest rodent control job I have personally worked on," said Terry Clark. "And I have seen infestations exceeding 10,000 rats at one property."

While Terry is in Haiti participating in the Haitian Relief effort, Clark Pest Control will be tracking his work and experience through an online blog at

The primary mission of this first delegation leaving May 5th is to assess current pest issues and potential infestation risk factors.  The group of NPMA delegates will then determine the number of follow-up visits needed to implement control measures and monitor the results moving forward.

"The Haitian people are facing a long and hard recovery and it is important that we provide continued support that will see them through," added Clark.

Throughout Terry's visit, Terry Clark will be in close contact so be prepared for updates on the work he will be doing.
