In recent years, bee populations have dramatically decreased worldwide and they need our help. One of the largest threats to bees is a lack of safe habitat where they can build homes and find a variety of nutritious food sources.
Bees are responsible for pollinating about one-third of the world’s food supply. You can do your part to help keep bee populations in your area healthy. You can provide a honey bee-friendly habitat in your yard or other outdoor spaces, opt for bee-attractive blooms like crocus, sweet alyssum, sunflowers. It wil produce enough nectar for bees.
Limit the use of herbicides, which are not directly toxic to bees, but kill the flowering “weeds” bees need for food.
