6 Ways You Can Help Save the Bees

meandthebees mikailaulmer Save the Bees Worldhoneybeeday

  1. Bee-informed: Read as much as you can about honeybees and other pollinators! National geographic, the Honeybee Conservative, my Beelieve blog and the American Beekeeping Federation have informative articles about the honeybee and other important pollinators. 
  2. Shop smart: Buy local honey & groceries. By supporting local growers and beekeepers you’re supporting sustainable agriculture and honey harvesting! Even eating organic fruits and veggies goes a long way.
  3. Mix it up: Plant bee-friendly flowers with different colors, shapes and bloom times. By spicing up your lawn and garden can not only boost the health of your garden but also provide bees with the pollen they need to sustain their hives.
  4. Don’t spray it! Avoid using herbicides or pesticides in your garden. They contain chemicals that are very harmful to bees and other beneficial insects. Instead, try some natural alternatives, Ladybugs, spiders, and praying mantises will naturally keep pest populations in check.
  5. Share the Buzz. Bee-friend me on social media, and follow other honeybee advocates. Share facts, stories, and videos. Social media is an awesome and easy way to help spread the word.
  6. Buy from social good businesses. Did you know that I donate 10% of the profit from the sale of my lemonade to organizations fighting hard to save bee populations?  I even started the Healthy Hive Foundation to help increase my impact. There are many other great products that support the cause of saving the bees as well. Visit my Where to Buy page and Buy a Bottle, Save a Bee!
