Bees are amazing. Bees are responsible for pollinating our natural foods, beverages, and ingredients in medicines. 1/3 of everything that we consume comes from pollinated plants. What’s horrifying is that bees are disappearing at an astonishing rate. Bees are disappearing because of pesticides, loss of habitat, and food supply.
What can you do to help save the bees?
Plant a bee garden. Bees need flowers that provide nectar, their food. You don’t need a lot of space to make bees happy. Choose native flowers and plants that produce nectar and pollen such as Sunflowers, Daisies, Foxgloves, Asters, Cosmos, and Zinnias. Select a colorful rainbow of flowers (blues, purples, oranges, and yellows) that bloom throughout the seasons and never use pesticides.
