It’s no secret these days that honey bees are extremely important. Bees function as some of the great pollinators in the world. 

Because of their importance to our food crops it is more crucial than ever to support bees. Here are some easy ways to help save the bees (without going full-on beekeeper).

Let Your Lawn Get Back To Its Roots

  1. Put down the weed-killer! Bees don’t have any use for that perfectly manicured sea of green. They prefer something similar to their natural habitat—a meadow.
  2. Think about letting a portion of your yard go back to its roots. Allow dandelions and clover to grow again (two of bees’ favorite delicacies). Not only will you spend less time mowing your lawn, the bees will thank you for it.
