Don't Step on A Bee Day!

The 10th July unites the nation for this years Don’t Step on a Bee Day! As ever, we're calling for your help to protect our precious bees.

Without the tireless work of our native bees, over a third of everything we eat would disappear from our tables. Bees are so vital for the ecosystem of the planet and yet they are under threat like never before.

What can you do? 

This Don’t Step on a Bee Day, we urge you to help spread the message! We would love it if you could share the message with your friends on Facebook or Twitter and tag @BeeGood_UK or use #DontStepOnABeeDayor #BeeGoodtobees on Instagram to help raise awareness!

But there's even more you can do. Here are our top five 5 Bee care tips:

  1. Don’t step on a bee(of course!)
  2. Support your local beekeeper. The majority of honey here in the UK is imported (85%), but with the wealth of beekeepers on our doorstep, there is really no need to buy imported honey. Support your local beekeeper by visiting a nearby farm shop or deli and enjoy the honey produced by ,local bees from local flowers for breakfast on some warm buttered toast - delicious!
  3. Plant our Wild Flower Seedballs! We send a Seedball containing 100 bee-friendly seeds with every Bee Good order placed on beegood.co.uk – it couldn’t be easier! Simply scatter your Seedball  in your garden, allotment, flower pot or window box to create dozens of attractive, bee-friendly blooms.
  4. Identify your local bees Here in the UK, we have 1 species of Honeybee, 24 species of Bumblebees and around 240 species of Solitary bees who come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and lifestyles. The British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) has an area on their website called "What bee is this?" which helps identify most of the more common bees seen in the UK.  
  5. Give the lawn mower a rest. Leave the dandelions and daisies to grow for a few weeks, to provide food for bees and butterflies. If not the whole lawn then maybe a little wild flower area just left for insects and pollinators.
