Create your own Bee & Bee this spring
Community gardens, parks and landscaped areas are increasingly important places for wild, native bees. Scientists say there may be as many as 50 species of native bees in the average backyard garden. Many bee species burrow in the ground or use hollow plant stems for homes.
You can help Canada’s 40 species of bumble bees by creating bed & breakfast accommodation right in your backyard or even on your balcony. You’ll find they, in turn, will help you with better results in your garden.
Better still, once you find bumble bees visiting your Bee & Bee, join in the Great Canadian Bumble Bee Count to help scientists learn about your bumble bee visitors.
