You probably won't know this, but it's World Bee Day on Wednesday.
But in her role as Shadow Minister for Primary Industries, Jenny Aitchison is going in to bat on behalf of the state's beekeepers.
The Member for Maitland has urged the Berejiklian State Government to provide urgent relief to beekeepers who were severely impacted by the devastating summer 2019/20 bushfires that destroyed thousands of hives housing many millions of bees.
But unlike many instances where financial support is everything, in this case it's not.
One move that would be a massive help to them would be to allocate alternative sites for their hives in unburnt sections of state and national parks and conservation areas to allow the bees to feed and strengthen in readiness for the vital role of pollination.
In her role as Shadow Minister for Primary Industries, Ms Aitchison travelled widely across the state earlier this year prior to the COVID19 pandemic and spoke to many apiarists about the devastating impacts on the industry.
"The industry had really been hit hard by three years of ongoing drought, and then had to endure over seven months of bushfires around the state," she said.
"Apiarists right across the state are concerned that the trees their bees need simply won't recover in time. It could take between five and 20 years for some flowering gums to recover enough to produce enough nectar and pollen to feed the bees.
"Apiarists are looking for alternative sites.
"NSW apiarists were given short-term food source of sugar supplements for the bees in the fire-affected areas earlier this year, but they need ongoing support from the Government to ensure not only the bees future, but the sustainability of the many other primary producers in horticulture who are reliant on bee pollination."
NSW is the largest honey producing state in Australia.
