Did you know that roughly a third of the food we eat is dependent on bees? They pollinate many of the fruits and vegetables we humans eat and much of the food that our livestock eats. Without bees, many of our food sources would simply cease to exist.
Unfortunately, bees are disappearing across the globe at an alarming rate, due in large part to pesticide use and habitat loss. The global loss of bee populations is something that affects us all, so we should all do our part to help bees whenever possible.
What You Can Do To Help
Start by carefully choosing pollinator-friendly flowers and flowering herbs for your yard and garden. This will help with their habitat loss. Planting sunflower, sage, or verbena are just a few of the many things you can do to make your yard bee-friendly. Also, consider adding a small water source for the bees these kinds of plants will attract. A birdbath or small saucer with raised stones will give your bees a nice place to land and have a drink.
