Make A Bee Waterer

Kim Flottum author of  The Backyard Beekeeper: An Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Keeping Bees in Your Yard and Garden tells us that bees work hard and need access to safe water sources as they risk drowning in birdbaths or being eaten at rivers and lakes by birds, fish, frogs and other wildlife.

One simple solution to this problem is to add marbles or pebbles to a bowl or pan and then add water. The marbles give the bees a spot to land so they don’t drown when they come to drink.
