How To Save Bees From Extinction?
Honey bees are the world’s most indispensable pollinator of food crops. They are advantageous because bees provide us with fruits, nuts, leaves, seeds and roots. People often snub the fact that bees pollinate food eaten by animal and birds. There are several fruits which require pollination such as soybeans, avocadoes, cucumber, citrus fruit, asparagus, etc.
Nowadays, bees are vanishing, so we have to take the initiative to make the world a healthier place for bees. We mention some information below that you can follow to save the bees from quenching.
Make A Bee-friendly Garden
It is essential for bees to have a diverse and consistent supply of food. Make a garden with bee-friendly and indigenous plants such as sage, salvia, dragonhead, honeywort, English thyme, buttercup, etc. All these plants are the prime source for nectar.
Skip the flowers that are sterile or lack pollen, for example, hybrid flowers or double flowers. Furthermore, bees converge on one flower type at a time so try to plant flowers in patches.
Cut of the Insecticides
Use herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides sparingly or try to circumvent them. Plants get tainted with the pesticide such as neonicotinoid insecticides, which is extremely dangerous or life-threatening for honey bees.
Neonics acts as a bee killer, because it is designed to poison the nectar of the plants and we all know, bees feed on the sap and nectar.
Encourage the Local Beekeeper
Beekeeper works hard to nurture the honey bees, and they provide better habitat to them. So you should acquire honey from the local beekeepers because there are many health benefits associated with the local honey. Moreover, it is more appetizing than commercial honey.
Beekeepers create soaps, lotions, and beeswax candles from the spare hive products. So you can volunteer the local beekeepers to save the bees from stifling.
Create a Bee Bath
If you want to give a break to bees from foraging and pollinating then fill a shallow birdbath with clean and fresh water and then arrange the stones inside the bows so that the bees can thump out of the water. This is an entertaining activity and also helps us to save honey bees.
Protect And Create the Bees Nest Site
A bunch of vacant canes is enough to build a home for solitary bees. Always remember to use untreated wood at the time of making solitary bee house. Dodge the use of plastic and tin cans, because it will lead to condensation.
If you are interested in observing bees, then there are well-made bees house available in the market which will beautify your garden. Moreover, these bee houses are profoundly affordable.
