UK: New “Bee-Friend” Smartphone App

Scientists in the UK are hoping citizens will help provide data via this new app re bees & other pollinating insects that visit their home gardens.

6/20/13: “Public urged to use smartphone app to aid bee scientists”: http://guardiannews.com/environment/2013/jun/20/smartphone-app-bee-scientists

It also mentions a store chain that has set up “Bee Hotels” :) at its 109 locations to entice bees to come pollinate nearby plant-life. Cute!

It also says 1-bite out of 3 is from food that requires pollination by these critters.
