How to Simply Help the Pollinators

Every living thing needs food, water, and a place to live, and bees are no exception – even our native solitary bees need water. 

It’s a Dry Heat

Help bees stay cool in the heat by offering them a safe space to get their needed water.  If you have fruit trees, or a vegetable garden, you need the help of these busy flying friends, so it’s only fair to help them in return.

Water is Important

You can make a simple bee watering space with a plant saucer or pie plate.

Bees can’t swim – so add decorative rocks or marbles so bees can land and safely drink.

Speaking of safety – keep your pets safe by putting your bee watering spot out of reach of curious cats and rambunctious dogs.
