This week 96FM spoke with Cork City Council and the Irish Bee Conservation Charity.
Did you know…
All plants with flowers completely rely on two types of pollination for reproduction; Self-pollination and Cross-pollination.
There are 98 different species of solitary bees in Ireland.
Unlike social bees, most solitary female bees prefer to make their nest alone with no assistance from other individuals.
What you can do…
Visit the Fota Pollinator Trail and learn more about Irish pollinators,
pollinator-friendly plants and the pollination process.
