Why It’s Important to ‘Bee’ Kind to Nature

(GivenUs.com) – By now, you’ve probably heard that bees are essential to our ecosystem. They do the important work of pollinating plants and producing honey, and many of them are now considered endangered due to climate change, habitat loss and other environmental factors. Because this has impacted a growing number of bees, it’s more important than ever that you “bee” kind to nature.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Skip pesticides, opting for eco-friendly, non-chemical ways to get rid of weeds and garden pests.
  • Plant bee-friendly flowers that attract pollinator friends.
  • Consider a bee house; it’s like a birdhouse but provides shelter for bees.
  • Call a local beekeeper when you see a swarm rather than trying to kill the bees.
  • Save a sleepy bee by mixing up two tablespoons of sugar with one tablespoon of water and serving it up to an ailing, unmoving bee.
  • Put out a bee bath during the hot summer months.

Learning to “bee” kind can help bees flourish. This keeps your garden happy and helps the ecosystem stay healthy. What’s good for bees is also good for you. When you skip the harmful chemicals and plant more flowers, the world is more beautiful — and healthier, too.
