4 Easy Ways You Can Save the Bees



How to Help Save Honey Bees

Honey bees are very important in the wild, for food production and in gardens. Without them, much pollination would cease. This article provides helpful ideas to help save honey bees.

Steps

  1. Sign up for a free packet of seeds at Beesmatter.ca if you are Canadian.They will provide you with Lance-leaved Coreopsis, New England Aster, Dense Blazing Star, Golden Tickseed, and Sneezeweed flower seeds. Beesmatter.ca also provides helpful tips on saving bees.
  2. Avoid using pesticides.Pesticides are harmful to bees.
  3. Choose your honey carefully.Local bee farmers that care about their honey bees is a great way to go!
  4. Eat organic foods.Eating organic is one way of supporting the banning of pesticides. Eating organic is healthier; and, if you plant your own vegetables and fruit, you are supporting the honey bees.
  5. Leave bee hives alone when you find them.Don't go disturbing the bees or taking their honey or honey comb.
  6. Leave dandelions and clover growing in your grass.These are some very popular flowers that honey bees make stops at since they are abundant.
  7. Put a small basin of water outside near your garden.Bees get thirsty just like us. Bird baths also work for providing the bees with a drink.
    • Make sure to place small twigs inside the basin so that the bees have a place to stand on while drinking.
    • Change the water in your basin every 1-4 days.
  8. Realize that bees are your friends.Honey bees don't want to hurt you. They rarely sting. The only reason they do sting on rare occasions is because they are very disrupted or angry. Bees die a few hours after they sting you, so they prefer not to sting so they can live.
  9. Use safe bee removals if you have bees living in your house.Go with an option that releases them into a natural environment rather than killing them.
  10. Research and learn more about honey bees.

    I live in Delhi in a small house, how can I keep a bee in my home?

    Bees will die if you keep them in your house. They belong with other bees in a hive, which is a bee-house. You can get hives and keep bees if there are enough flowers nearby for them to gather pollen and nectar. They carry pollen in little bags on their back legs, and store it in their hive. They use pollen and nectar to feed baby bees and to make honey for bees to eat.
    Thanks!

  • Question
    I just saw a lot of honey bees in my chicken run and I would like to keep them. What should I do?

    If you want to help them (not keep them), see if they build a nest anywhere, look at where they go, where they get their food, etc. If they are building nests, lay out some honey and watch them get used to it. Put it out every day (maybe a teaspoon) and see where they build the nest. If it's near your house, you will get a lot of dead bees; if not, just leave them be.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    I know that bees are good for flowers, but are they also good for fruit trees?

    Yes. Fruit trees contain flowers, thus the bees will fertilize the flowers and are therefore good for the fruit trees.
    Thanks!

    Bees are doing just fine. Only a minor species in Hawaii was ever mentioned in the media as being threatened. Why the fear mongering?

    Lots of bees are dying because of bad treatment by beekeepers who want money. They're not in the news because some people don't think they're useful enough. Bees are important to many facets of our lives and food!
    Thanks!
