Lots of folks are worried about the future of bees, especially considering
their diminishing numbers over the last couple of years.

Here's an idea for your garden or back yard -

a honeybee watering station:

Bees need water just like we do but often they drown in open water.
To make a bee watering station you can use a pet fountain, above, or
simply fill a small dish with marbles or rocks and add water.  The
rocks are important because it gives the bees something to land on.



Honeybees are the under-appreciated workers who pollinate 80% of flowering crops,
i.e., one-third of everything we eat.  A Cornell University study estimated that
honeybees pollinate $14 billion worth of seeds and crops in the U.S. every year.
You can read more about these tireless little workers here.  It really will amaze you.
Keep on buzzin', little guys.  We really do
appreciate all of your hard work.
