DIVERSITY

The more flowering species you have, the more types of bees you will attract! Plant list here.

CONTINUOUS BLOOM

If your garden keeps blooming - spring, summer, and fall - bees will stick around.

MORE SUN!

Bees like it hot! Many of us have shady yards, so plant bee-friendly flowers in the sunniest patches.

BIG PATCHES

Bees seek out flower patches that are at least 3 feet x 3 feet (or larger) in size. Plant in clumps!

ELIMINATE PESTICIDES

This is key. Pesticides kill bees.

KEEP IT "WILD"

Keep your yard a bit messy - bees often nest in piles of rocks, sticks, and patches of bare ground.
