Bees Needs Week

July 12, 2019 8:30 AM

Honey beeBees' Needs Week is a week long campaign from 8-14 July to help raise awareness of bees and other pollinators.

Bees and other pollinators are vital to growing lots of our favourite foods and for plants to flourish in our fields and gardens. Bees' Needs Week is a great opportunity for you to find out more about how important pollinators are and how you can support them.

Whether you are a farmer, a gardener, or a manager of urban or amenity spaces, there is something you can do to help support our valuable insect pollinators.

There are five simple actions you can take to help pollinators and make sure their populations are sustained:

  1. Grow more flowers, shrubs and trees
  2. Let your garden grow wild
  3. Cut your grass less often
  4. Don't disturb insect nest and hibernation spots
  5. Think carefully about whether to use pesticides
