How To Increase The Bee Population In Your Garden

bumble beeSince we rely on bees for many processes to take place, it is important that we do as much as we can in order to encourage their presence. After all, a fear of being stung is never an excuse to purposely harm an insect as it is trying to pollinate in your garden and, as the saying goes, they are probably more scared of us than we are of them. Read on as the team here at Easy Garden Watering go over a few exciting ways that you can help increase the bee population….  

Why Do We Need Bees?

Bees are adapted in order to pollinate our plants and this means that they are necessary in order to help them grow. In fact, bees don’t only focus on flowers as they are also important for the growth of many of the foods that we eat on a daily basis including almonds, apples, squash and even vanilla. As a result, bee conservation has never been so important.  

Top Tips

One of the best ways to promote the bee population in your garden is to ensure that the plants you grow are as healthy as possible. After all, bees will pollinate a yard that is brightly coloured and offers a lot of variety which mean that watering your plants and flowers regularly is essential as a bee must be able to transport pollen from flower to flower efficiently.  

In addition to this, homeowners should avoid using harsh chemicals on their plants as these can kill bees and sabotage the longevity of their garden in the process. This is because the compounds used in these sprays are man-made which means that they work against the natural intention of the environment, which involves bees pollinating the plants.  

Here at Easy Garden Watering, we believe that a healthy garden requires regular visits from bees. After all plants need to be pollinated and these insects help us do just that. Luckily, our garden irrigation systems can help you grow bright and healthy plants that bees will be more than happy to visit!
