Ten Things You Can Do to Save the Bees

Presented by Master Gardener Sindey Platz

1.  Plant bee friendly flowers and herbs – put that lawn mower back in the shed.

2. “Weeds” can “bee” good (clover and dandelions) – live and let live.

3. Don’t mono-crop, plant various types of flowers and herbs – forget the turf.

4. Don’t use chemicals and pesticides in your yard or garden – just say NO.

5. Provide a small basin of fresh water outside – Kansas summers are hot.

6. Build a bee home – don’t forget the ground bees.

7. Protect nest sites – leave those brush/leaf piles.

8. Encourage and educate your neighbors to support bees – spread the word.

9. Support local sustainable agriculture.

10.Become a bee keeper – honey and native bees alike.
