Bee numbers are in serious decline. Faced by loss of natural habitat, disease and pesticides our bees could use some help.
They play an extremely important role in our ecosystem as vital pollinators to our food crops.
Bees rely on pollen and nectar from flowers for survival. One way we can help is to create bee-friendly pesticide free gardens or planters/pots. Plant more nectar rich flowers that bloom throughout the year and help feed our fuzzy friends.
