5 Things You Can Do To Help Nature's Natural Pollinators

Monday, February 29, 2016

A crucial component of natural plant and tree cultivation is pollination – fertilization spread by bees, butterflies, even hummingbirds.  Today, we are finding this is more important than ever, so we are sending out seed packets to help in this cause.  Let us know if you’d like a free sample.

Last year, we set up a “Bee and Bee” and we have already started seeing the pollinators emerge, and here are many variations of honey and bumblebees out there to see. Our biggest concern is they may be threatened due to overuse of pesticides and destruction of their natural habitat.
Here are 5 things you can do to help preserve bees in your environment:

  1. Reduce or eliminate pesticides used on foraging plants
  2. Plant a bee-friendly pollinator garden in your yard
  3. Register your area with S.H.A.R.E.
    (Simply Have Areas Reserved for the Environment)
  4. Check out the many bee-friendly devices you can hang in your yard
  5. Support your local beekeeper – buy local organic honey

Also, check out this Illustrated Guide To a Pollinator-Friendly Garden by another bee-friendly author Chris McLaughlin.

If you’d like to learn more about our Save The Bees campaign, give us a call.  We’d love to hear what you’re doing to help preserve our little earth-friendly friends.
