HOW YOU CAN HELP….
There are many positive actions you can take to help bees:
- Avoid the use of toxic chemicals (including pesticides, herbicides and fungicides) in your garden. Use certified organic garden products and natural pest strategies instead – they are safer, more economical and environmentally friendly.
- Grow a bee-attracting garden with plants rich in nectar and pollen that bees love to feed on to encourage them to pollinate your food crops.
- Provide fresh water in a small bowl for bees to access, bees can’t swim, so add something for them to stand on when drinking.
- Buy local honey to support small beekeepers maintain hives and biodiversity.
- Swap your lawn for a food garden or natural bee habitat. Flowers, herbs and vegetables provide a rich source of food for bees.
- Buy organic fresh produce to support organic farmers and avoid genetically modified crops.
- Start keeping bees at home – both urban and rural environments need bees.
