Don't be afraid of them!

! Apart from honeybees, there are nearly seven hundred bee species in the Carpathian Basin. Protect them by preserving their nesting sites and setting up bee pastures suitable for nesting. Don’t be afraid of them; they are very peaceful by nature. This is especially true for the wild bees that lead mostly solitary lives, such as the sweat bees nesting in the ground, the leafcutter bees residing in small cavities and plant stems, and the mason bees.

Consume honey purchased from local producers!

Intensive agricultural practices negatively affect the living conditions of pollinators, with fewer species visiting the flowers that require pollination. Domesticated honeybees, under the care of beekeepers, can withstand environmental stressors better than other insects. By buying local honey, you contribute to the support of the most numerous pollinators, the honeybees, and the work of beekeepers.

Avoid synthetic, systemic insecticides!

If you must use them, do so in a way that does not harm the bees. Chemicals pose the greatest threat to the insect world, including bees. In your immediate surroundings and garden, seek alternative methods of pest control. Try to carry out all pesticide-related activities in the evening or twilight hours when most bees have returned to the safety of their hives.

Plant bee-friendly flowers in your garden!

Many garden owners take pride in manicured lawns that are regularly mowed. Ecologically speaking, these lawns are rather barren. Instead, you can create a more diverse, nature-friendly environment, incorporating various flowers like daisies, clover, dandelions, or other small flowering plants. Leaving patches of wildflowers intact during mowing is already a big help for bees seeking nourishment.

Teach children about wildlife conservation, tell them about bees!

Spend time outdoors with your children and educate them about how the natural world operates. It’s essential for children to see bees as tireless workers in pollinating blooming flowers, rather than viewing them as mass attackers from disaster movies.
