What you can do for the bees

  • Do not use any pesticides in your own garden.
  • In your own garden, plant insect-pollinating native plants, and bear in mind that there should be manifold, permanent flowering from spring to autumn.
  • Cut down on your use of wireless technologies.
  • Do not buy any ornamental plants with filled blossoms, because they produce very little pollen and nectar or none at all.
  • Put up nesting aids for wild bees (“insect hotels”).
  • In your own garden, arrange for a drinking trough for bees and other insects.
  • Buy honey from your local beekeeper.
  • Buy organic food, produced without pesticides.
  • Consciously treat the bees with respect and gratitude.
