If you are a follower of ours on social media, you will know about our love for the humble honeybee; an endangered insect that we are campaigning and striving to save. Having such a pivotal role in our ecosystem, we wish to share some tips on how to help save the bee population. So, if you want to #BeeTheSolution, read on!
Buy a bee hotel for your garden
Bee hotels provide solitary bees with a place to live and lay their eggs, being safe havens for our precious pollinators. When purchasing a Bee1 Bee Hotel, you will not only be helping make your garden a bee-friendly environment but investing funds into the bee-friendly projects and incredible programmes we deliver in schools and the local community.
Plant a wildflower bee bomb!

Ditch the chemicals!
When gardening, avoid using synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, and neonicotinoids. This is because they are harmful to bees!

Adopt a bee!
Don’t have a garden or are not particularly green-fingered? There are still many things you can do to spread awareness and support the campaign to save the honey bee! One way is to adopt a bee!
