You Can Help Save the Bees!


1.   Buy local honey.

2.   Do not kill honey bees they do not want to hurt you.

3.   Do not use pesticides (bug killer) in your yard!

4.   Plant nectar and pollen-producing flowers like:  Geraniums, Iris, Foxglove, Cosmos, Zinnia, Sunflowers, Dahlias, Asters, Marigolds, Hyacinths, Crocuses, Daisies,  Daffodils, Tulips, or Catnip

5.   Plant flowers in colors that bees can see: Blue, Purple, Orange, and Yellow. They cannot see Red.
