Feed the Bees
Bees forage on flowers to collect nectar (a source of carbohydrates) and pollen ( a source of protein) to help them grow and provide them with energy for their busy work. A well-nourished bee is more capable of fighting disease and parasites.
The easiest thing we can do to help the bees is to provide bee-friendly flowers in our gardens, no matter where we live. Follow this link to get some ideas of what flowers to grow in your garden.
