What other ways can you help save the bees?
- You can plant some bee-friendly plants in your garden. If you need inspiration you can sign up to Bumblebee Conservation Trust’s Bee Kind Tool today! #BeeKind . Sign up here.
- Ditch the pesticides! Opt for natural methods of pest control instead of reaching for your typical high street pesticide.
- Choose organic – not only for your wardrobe but also for your food shop. If you can’t grow your own then choose to support the companies producing their food organically, this itself sends a signal to retailers as well as farmers that there is a demand for organic produce and a more conscious way of living,
- If you have the space, why not build your own ‘bee hotel’ and help the bee population recover from the decline in habitats over the last few years – there’s lot of examples online!
