(KTEN) — Spring is right around the corner, and along with it those familiar flowers and bees.

But pollination season has changed over the last few years, with the bee population declining due to plant growth issues.

Weather conditions and pesticides reduce the bee population by millions, causing them to starve and eventually die off.

But 13-year-old Texoma entrepreneur Lucile Morhouse is finding a way to save the bees utilizing a unique mix of seed packets that she is offering for free.

The Choctaw County 4-H member started the Bee Box Project. Morhouse received a grant to distribute 600 seed packets to grow the kind of flowers that help bees thrive.

"Not a lot of people know this, but bees are actually very crucial to us, too," she said. "One out of every three bites you eat is because of pollinators... not only with our diets, but their diets... it's very important."

Without bees pollinating flowers, we wouldn't have vegetables or fruit to eat. These seed packets help give them a diverse and filling diet to be active in our ecosystem.

On average, 12 bees only consume about a tablespoon of sugar, which is not enough for them to thrive.
