Lets talk about 🐝 BEES, beecause they are unbeelievably important!
. ✔️ Bees play a vital role in sustaining our planets ecosystem! Most of our fruits and vegetables need bees and other insects to pollinate them for growth. Besides the food we eat, bees play a very important role in pollinating the food that birds and smaller mammals to eat.
🌟 When I first started Nature Bee I really only understood the basics about bees, and I still don't know much, but I am learning something new all the time. Stay tuned as I continue to share more facts and information about BEES! For now, lets all appreciate how vital bees are to our ecosystem and make sure that we are doing our part to protect them <3
Happy World Bee Day! 🐝 These fuzzy little creatures are so integral to the health of our planet that we have reserved a special day just for them. Sadly, this year, the most poignant information to highlight is the news that 17 species of bees native to eastern England have officially been declared extinct with 25 other varieties threatened in the area. This is ominous news for the Earth considering how much of our food supplies is dependent upon the pollination process. Bees are a massive preserver when it comes to ecological balance and it should be mentioned that beeswax has been used for decades in order to test for and help to combat against rising air pollution levels. Their importance cannot be overstated. Try not to swat at these little guys the next time you see them, they’re our friends and they are depending upon our love and respect to survive! 💛 Love the bees!
1. Stop using pesticides and chemicals on your landscapes! Dispose of them TODAY. You even have to be careful with some pesticides that are labeled “organic,” make sure they are bee safe (just stick w/ neem oil). If you live in an apartment, make some noise and make sure all the landscaping is organic. Look at your other spaces— your work, your kids school, the community center, get them to pledge to be chemical free! You can make an impact!
2. Plant for pollinators. Have pollen and nectar sources all year. Ditch the lawn and plant natives. If the only thing blooming are weeds, keep the weeds.
3. Buy organic. Organic food, clothes, plants, etc.
4. Stop buying plants from big box stores, they generally spray everything with bee killing pesticides. That flower from Home Depot you’re planting for bees might actually be luring them to their death. Don’t be a bee murderer.
5. Have a shallow dish of water for thirsty bees w/some rocks to prevent drowning
6. Buy local, raw, sustainably harvested honey. Support your local beekeepers!
7. Spread the word that swarms shouldn’t be exterminated. Call a bee keeper instead and they’ll gently remove it, usually for free!
8. Make or buy habitats. ( @crown_bees is a great resource).
9.Teach kids to love and appreciate bees, not fear them.
10. Vote for representatives that care about the environment and who are actively seeking out policy changes.
Evening I am a little slow on this today as I have had my head down and making but today is World Bee Day. I have to say Bees are one of my favourite things to make at the moment and as you can see my collection of bee makes is getting bigger all the time. If you are interested in ordering any of the bee items just give me a shout.
Remember LOVE THE BEES
Have an awesome evening Emily xxx

Today is World Bee Day 🐝 #WorldBeeDay is celebrated every year on May 20, the day that Anton Janša, the pioneer of beekeeping, was born in 1734. The purpose of this international day is to acknowledge the role of bees as pollinators and how they contribute to complex, interconnected ecosystems that allow a diverse number of different species to co-exist.
Looking after the bees is always a priority in the Weleda gardens.
Our 13 acre gardens are very bio-diverse so there’s plenty of flowering food available and we offer a nice selection of homes too! We do have a traditional apiary but also two tree hives and a sun hive.
These more unusual bee homes offer an insulated space up off the ground where the bees are left alone to ‘do their thing’, building their own honeycomb and swarming whenever they need to. We don’t take any honey from these hives, we just want to give the bees a safe space to be! 💚🐝💚 #weleda#weledauk#lovethebees#ethicalfarming#biodynamic#naturalskincare#naturalproducts#organicskincare#organicproducts#wellbeing#warwickshire
🐝 Celebrating World Bee Day 🐝
🌸🐝🌹🐝🌼🐝🌺🐝💐🐝🌻 Help us support 50 Million Bees by 2020
3% of our sales from the Bee Lovely range goes to bee friendly charities
1 in 3 mouthfuls of our food is thanks to Bee pollination.
Caring for Bees means allowing our gardens to be more wild, embracing plants such as the dandelion so that bees have plenty of food in colder drier spells. Not strimming areas that can be left as a wild meadow so bees have more food, and most importantly avoiding the use of chemicals such as Glyphosphate which is a herbicide found in Round up weed killer.
!!!Bee Birth!!! _
RIght out of this beauty 🐝🐝🐝🌳absolutely wild and truly bee-utiful! Amazing to see a wild colony this size.
The opening in the cottonwood tree is shaped like a 💫vagina 💫 no coincidence. 🔮
Now how do I save this mother hive is the question?! Their home is currently in a public park, they thought it was wasps in the tree. I relocated another swarm this colony just birthed, it was a huge ball of bees away from this one. 🙏🐝🙏 _
If you see something like this or a large ball of bees, call me or a local beekeeper in your area. 🚫Don’t spray them!🚫 Swarm season is in FULL swing 🐝🐝🐝
