Bees are important pollinators and visitors to our gardens. Did you know that there are approximately 400 different species of bees in Ontario? Bees need water to dilute honey, help with digestion, to keep their hives cool, and to feed their babies. Use this Bee Bath to help support your local bee population. Place the stones in the shallow bowl and add just enough water so that the tops of the stones are above the water line. Bees will perch on the stones to collect water. Place the bath in a protected, shady spot in your garden. For best results, elevate the dish slightly (e.g. atop an overturned plant pot) and change the water daily.
