Columbus Georgia Has Bee Gardens as Well as Callaway

This is Roger Tinker, owner and general manager of all star pest control in Columbus, Georgia. Let’s talk about bee gardens. Bee gardens are central to our planet’s eco center, pollinating plants that provide us with food and oxygen, and food. Unfortunately, bee populations are in decline due to habitat loss, pesticide use and climate change. One way to help bees is to create a big garden in your backyard. And that can actually be a fun project to do. A big garden is a garden that’s designed to attract and support bees. It can be any size from a small wind box to a large backyard garden, then most important thing is to choose plants that are native to your area and that bloom throughout the growing season. Here’s some tips for creating a big garden. Choose the right location. bees need a sunny spot to forge so choose a location your yard that gets at least six hours of sunlight per day. Plant a variety of flute flowers. These are attracted to flowers of all shapes and sizes, but they especially love flowers that are blue, purple, or yellow. Some good bee friendly plants include lavender, sun, flowers, asters and bee bone. Provide a water source as babies need water to drink. So we place a shallow dish of water in your garden. Put some rocks in that dish so the bees have something to stand on and don’t drown. Avoid using pesticides, by us are particularly susceptible to picking up pesticides and dying from them. So if you’re gonna have a big garden, do not use them in that garden. If you have a pest problem try other methods such as insecticidal soap for Nemo. In addition to planning the right plants, here are a few other things you can do to make your big garden more attractive to bees. Leave some background. These need background and nasty and if you have a lot of mulch in your garden, leave a small patch of background exposed. And I would say a small patch should be at least four by four. Provide a shelter. Bee’s Knees shelter from the wind and rain. You can revive the shelter by planting shrubs and trees or even placing a bee house in your garden. You need to let the plants go to seed. They use love to collect pollen from flowers, but they also need nectar to feed their young. When your plants go to see they provide even more nectar. Creating a big garden is a great way to help bees and other pollinators. It’s also fun and rewarding prop project. Here are some additional tips for creating a big garden. Plant in clumps. Babies are more likely to visit flowers if they’re planted in clumps. This makes it easy for them to find food and to pollinate the flowers. Choose plants with different bloom times. This will provide bees with a source of food throughout the growing season. Consider planting native plants native plants are adapted to the local climate and soil conditions and are also more likely to attract native bees. And again, avoid using herbicides. herbicides can kill baby friendly plants so avoid using them in your garden. Last, educate others about the importance of your bees. Talk to your friends, your family, your neighbors about the importantly be us and how they can help by creating bee gardens. By following these tips, you can create a big garden that is both beautiful and beneficial to bees and other pollinators. Again, I want to remind you that our whole agricultural economy depends on bees if we don’t have bees we don’t eat and we really need to think about that with all the climate change and everything we have.
