Provide safe and reliable pollen, nectar and water sources to boost your honeybee productivity and health.
A bee’s pollen basket is a concave region surrounded by coarse hairs, situated on the tibia on the bee’s hind legs. It helps in transporting pollen.

In its own way, a good shovel is every bit as important for successful beekeeping as a smoker or hive tool. Because honeybees need nectar, pollen and water to function, using that shovel to help install an organic, year-round pollinator garden to provide these critical resources can pay big dividends — whether you’re a beekeeper or you just want to help honeybees in your area.

These days, beekeepers still report heavy losses from colony collapse disorder and varroa mite infestations as well as diseases such as nosema. Considering the difficulties that managed honeybee colonies have faced — and continue to face — a well-established pollinator habitat could be the difference between life and death for some hives.

When resources are scarce, honeybees fly within a 6-mile radius to find what they need. These longer flights are physically taxing, and the extended travel can increase bees’ potential exposure to pesticides and pathogens along the way. But when resources are safe, plentiful and close to home, honeybees can spend most of their energy simply loading up on the goodies you provide them.
