Billions of bees are silently and unjustly dying from banned poisons
One of the major threats to bees is the lack of safe environment for building their homes and foraging for food.
A bee garden in a courtyard, a windowsill or a flower-pot with native flowers, can offer them a safe shelter. When the use of pesticides is imperative, selective organic products should be chosen, which will not be applied when the flowers are in bloom.
Reduced water supplies have a serious impact on bees that need plenty of water. Shelters with clean water and pebbles to prevent them from drowning, are crucial factors for their survival and productivity.
70% of bees overwinter underground to house their young to wait for spring to emerge. An untouched small sunny spot in the garden, can provide a safe haven for thousands of bees.
