HOW CAN I HELP BEES? USEFUL TIPS

There some tips:

PLANT TREES AND FLOWERS

Plant flowers that provide nectar and pollen, the natural food source of the bees, at home, in parks and forests in your neighborhood.

CONSUME ORGANIC PRODUCTS

Prefer organic foods: they are not contaminated with pesticides – healthier for you and for the bees.

DO NOT USE INSECTICIDES

Avoid using pesticides that are toxic for the bees, especially systemics (neonicotinoids); use biological control alternatives. 

MAINTAIN A COLONY OF BEES AT YOUR HOUSE

Keep a colony of stingless bees at home (in tropical and subtropical Latin America) or honey bees (temperate climate regions). Beekeeping has become a popular activity among nature lovers. Find out how in the campaign site.

BE CAREFUL AND PROTECT THE BEES

Protect bee colonies that you may find in buildings or in the wild. If for some reason they pose a risk, ask a knowledgeable beekeeper to remove them to a more appropriate location.

BE AWARE

Be a conscientious consumer, prefer companies that preserve nature and support efforts to protect the bees.

PLANT IN A SUSTAINABLE MANNER

Develop and use ecological agricultural practices that are based on sustainable concepts.

PRESERVE NATURE

Plant corridors of bee flowers near agricultural plantings, especially in monoculture areas, to increase biodiversity and food options for the bees.

ASK ABOUT THE PROBLEM

Ask authorities about Colony Collapse Disease (CCD) and how they intend to act on and respond to this problem.
