Create Your Own Bee & Bee Space

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 you learn about your bumble bee visitors.

Don’t forget to share these Bee & Bee resources with friends, family and neighbours – help grow bee-friendly communities and areas across Canada!

And once you have it set up, we’d love what your Bee & Bee garden or yard looks like – send us photos through

Did you know that there are also a wide variety of bee-friendly flowers and plants that you can add to your pollinator garden?
