Bumblebees are large, fuzzy insects with short, stubby wings. They are larger than honeybees, but they don't produce as much honey. However, they are very important pollinators. Without them, food wouldn't grow. Bumble bees face many threats, including habitat loss, pesticides, introduced diseases, climate change. The good news is that all of us—particularly wildflower gardeners —can help bumble bees in and around our own homes.
HOW YOU CAN HELP THE BEES:
Plant some pollen producing native flowers and herbs - Native wildflower plants are best because they have coevolved with indigenous bumble bees.
Let some fall leaves stay on the ground and avoid raking, tilling or mowing your yard in spring until the temperature has been in double digits for at least 3 consecutive days. Most bumble bees (and other lovely insect pals) nest underground in holes made by larger animals, grass tussocks or cavities such as hollow logs or spaces beneath rocks and leaves.
Avoid using both insecticides and herbicides should be avoided. In particular, steer clear of systemic pesticides such as neonicotinoids, which are taken up by the vascular systems of plants. This means bees and other pollinators are exposed to the poison long after a product has been applied when they feed on the plants’ nectar and pollen.
