Why our honeybees are endangered and what we can do about it
As small as bees are, their influence on the ecosystem is enormous: the industrious insects pollinate around 80% of all plants and thus ensure our survival. Without plants, there would soon be no more animals or humans. Albert Einstein already remarked: "If the bee disappears from the earth, then man has only four years to live."
Saving flower diversity
It is man's technological impact on nature that is causing the bee the biggest problems. Monocultures give bees a one-sided diet. This weakens their immune system and parasites, such as the Varroa mite, have an easy time. Pesticides also impair the bees' communication and orientation. As garden owners, we should therefore only use natural pest controllers. If we mow the lawn every three weeks at the earliest and plant flowering native plants such as daisies, sage, lavender and thyme, we are giving the little honey gatherers a life-saving treat.
Bee Gardening Flower Seeds - Grow Your Own Valuable Food for Honey Bees
The oldest "pets" of mankind need a varied food supply to stay healthy and to ensure our survival with their enormous pollination performance. The special flower seed mixture provides a lavish buffet for bees: the successive flowering plants provide a varied food supply - continuously from early summer until the first frost. The seeds of one bag are sufficient for about 1 m2 of bee pasture in the garden, on the terrace or on the balcony. Seeds can be sown from May onwards. And already after about three weeks the first flowers open - to the delight of bees and humans, who love to watch them doing their important work.
