Any Bee Ideas May Help

I love bees...

bumble, honey bees, whatever. they are incredible little creatures that work so hard. i have plenty of flowers and plants for them to diligently work on, yet their numbers are obviously dwindling, as most of us know, and fast.

but what can i do to help? what can one person do to really make a difference? shall i become a bee keeper?

Definitely - become a beekeeper!! Your food & the bees will thank you.

You would make a difference! If you and every other individual who did decide to become a beekeeper were added up, it would make a significant difference! It's just like 1 vote by itself isn't much, but added up they can make a difference! <br />

I hope that you will become a beekeeper since you live in the country! <br />
<br />
Thank you for the gesture too!<br />

Do you live in the country or the city? If you added a small bee hive, would it be a problem with neighbors? Bees have a very large area that they browse for food, so it is possible that you could have a hive away from your house and they will come to your garden.

Do you have any "Cottoneaster" growing in your garden, we have ,and the number of Bumble Bee,s they attract you would,nt believe. Did you know that Bumble Bees produce hardly any honey , only just enough to feed themselves.
