Bee the Change: 5 Ways to Save the Bees

Bees play a critical roll in our ecosystem by pollinating crops and plants. Due to factors like habitat loss, increased pesticide use, and climate change, bee populations are rapidly declining.


Here are five things you can do to “bee” the change and help save the bees:


Plant a Bee-Friendly Garden

By planting native plants that are rich in pollen and nectar, you can help provide bees (and other pollinators) the food they need to survive.


Some pollinator-friendly plants include: lupine (Lupinus perennis), lead plant (Amorpha canescens), virginia bluebell (Mertensia virginica), compass plant (Silphium laciniatum), butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa), wild bergamot (Monarda fistulosa), and false white indigo (Baptisia alba).




Avoid Using Pesticides

Pesticides can be harmful to bees and other pollinators. Try to avoid using pesticides, but if you can’t, choose ones that are bee-friendly and apply them at night when bees are less active.

Bees need places to nest and hibernate. Leave areas of your garden untamed to provide nesting spots. Many bees live in holes inside of trees, logs, or hollow stems – so wait until spring to cut back dead flowers and stems to give the bees a cozy home to hibernate. You can also purchase or create a DIY bee house!



Support Local Beekeepers

Buying honey and beeswax products from local beekeepers supports local business and helps promote healthy bee populations! Not only is local honey delicious, it is also made from local flora, which can help with seasonal allergies.

It may seem like a daunting task, but doing your small part can make an impact on the declining bee population. These 5 ways to save the bees are an easy way to give back to the pollinators and the environment. Remember, “bee” the change you want to see in the world!

Peer and Self Assessment Some courses incorporate peer review and self-assessment as part of the evaluation process. Peer assessment involves students evaluating and providing feedback on each other's work, fostering collaboration, critical thinking, and communication skills. Self-assessment encourages students to reflect on their own learning, strengths, weaknesses, and progress.Assessment methods vary write my assignment for me on course objectives, content, teaching philosophy, and learning outcomes. Professors and teaching assistants may use a combination of these methods to provide a comprehensive evaluation of student performance and provide feedback for improvement

By the way, I found a photo where you can find a cartoon bee https://depositphotos.com/vectors/cartoon-bee.html and the main thing is that I took the photo from here for an article for my website. Plus, I’m glad that I started doing marketing, because I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and now my husband supported me and I’ve been working in this field for a month now. The main thing is that I like it and it brings me income.
