TORONTO, Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In recognition of World Honey Bee Day 2022, Abell Pest Control called on its employees and their families to create original art featuring the honey bee as the muse. Over the past few months, Abell employees and their families from across the nation expressed their feelings about honey bees through various mediums. All the art is on display at Abell's home office in Toronto.

“We thought it would be fun to host a visible art campaign to educate and bring awareness around the hard work bees do to pollinate our plants and keep our ecosystem healthy," said John Abell, President, Abell Pest Control. "We were amazed at the response and the concern people have about the challenges bees face, including viruses, habitat loss, and climate change. Each submission told a poignant story of how threatened the honey bee is.”

World Honey Bee Day is celebrated every third Saturday in August. The day is about recognizing the role honey bees have in our ecosystem and the beekeepers who help maintain our bee population. Honey bees are vital to our food supply, as they are responsible for pollinating crops worldwide. The day also encourages everyone to enjoy and buy locally grown honey.
