Save the Bees

Bees play a critical role in the health of the planet, its ecosystems, and the people who depend on those ecosystems. These little workers are critical for our natural world, but their numbers are dropping at a terrifying rate. 13 bee species have become extinct in the UK since 1900 and a further 35 are on the threatened species list.

 

Gardens have huge potential to provide sanctuaries for bees and provide a patchwork of connected corridors for wildlife to travel through.

We have made this film to help raise awareness of the issue and promote the small things we can all do to help save the bees.

5 simple things you can do
to help save the bees

One of the simplest ways to attract bees to visit your garden is by growing native flowers for every season rich in pollen and nectar remember It’s just as important for bees, as it is for us, to have a diverse and regular food supply

1. Plant a bee garden

Bee-harming pesticides and herbicides are implicated in bee decline. It’s tempting to resort to buying a can of spray, but dealing with real pests like aphids is as easy as stripping them off with gloved hands.

2. Go chemical free

Foarging for food can be thirsty work. Provide a shallow bowl with some rocks in it that sits above clean water,  just enough to give bees a drink. Bees will land on the stones and pebbles to take a long, refreshing drink.

3. Make a bee bath

Mowed laws are like desserts to bees. Cutting the grass less gives bees both shelter and a place to feed. When you do mow cutting less often and less closely will give bees the support they need.

4. Let the grass grow

Local honey will be prepared by local beekeepers. This keeps food miles down and helps the beekeeper to cover the costs of beekeeping. Local honey complies with all food standards requirements but is not mistreated to give it a long shelf life. It tastes quite different to foreign supermarket honey and has a flavour that reflects local flora

5. Buy local honey
