Bees need your help! Bee numbers are declining throughout the world.
More than a third of what we eat relies on bees for pollination.
One of the easiest ways to help bees is planting bee-friendly gardens, full of flowers that bees love to feed from. Bees need food, so they can help pollinate our food.
Bees will forage on these flowers for nectar and pollen, which provide carbohydrates and protein for growth and energy. Well-nourished bees are more capable of fending off disease and parasites.
The best flowers are wildflowers. They attract bees and beneficial insects into the garden.
Another way you can be bee-friendly is by not spraying your garden when plants are in flower or bees are present. It is also best to spray early in the morning or at sunset.
You can also provide fresh, pesticide-free drinking water for bees. If you fill a saucepan of water, put pebbles or twigs in the water for bees to rest on while they drink.
There are lots of ways that you can help bees continue to do their vitally important work from the comfort of your own garden
