Local Meteorologist acknowledged the positive impact Sharper Impressions Painting is having on the local bee population. He spoke with Sharper Founder, Geoff Sharp about the company’s efforts, in an attempt to help encourage others to do their best to be environmentally friendly and try to stabilize the local eco-system.
A team of employees installed and painted bee boxes at the Sharper Impressions Painting home office a year ago. Simple bee boxes costing a few hundred dollars attract bees, enabling the critical work of pollinating seeds. The Sharper Impressions Painting team has been embracing the challenge of increasing the local bee population. The first hive of the year is thriving and the buzzing bees have already gone through several pounds of sugar water.
With warmer temperatures finally here and flowers starting to bloom, the Sharper Impressions family was ecstatic to see the escalating problem with Colony Collapse Disorder did not affect their bee population. This disorder, caused by a combination of disease and shrinking habitats, has scientists concerned over maintaining worldwide pollination rates.
