Bees need diverse food just like we do. They eat nectar and pollen from flowers - and one of the biggest challenges facing bees today is finding enough food. The good news is, you can help them! By planting pollinator attractant plants and gardens around the country, everyone can help feed the bees.
Honey bees play an important role in pollinating many of our fruits, nuts and vegetables which help contribute to a healthy diet. Since bees are so important to agriculture, we all need to do our part to help them thrive. Everyone can work together to create forage areas!
In 2015 over 250,000 people joined together to help feed a bee - planting their own gardens, ordering ‘Feed a Bee' wildflower seeds, and participating in partner activities across the country. Let's keep the momentum going.
With your help, Feed a Bee wants to plant millions more seeds. Order a seed packet, commit to growing a plant, and get involved with one of their partners. Growing pollinator attractant flowers, fruits, and vegetables is one of the best things you can do to help the bees! Pollinators prefer to visit sunny places, and honey bees are most attracted to yellow, blue, or purple flowers.
Honey bees are fascinating insects. They can visit up to 5,000 flowers per day and will fly five miles or more to get food. Feed a Bee hopes to educate people about pollinator food shortage and bring people together to increase forage areas. Support bee health with #FeedABee on social media.
