Did you know bees get just as thirsty and exhausted by heat as you? If you keep bees or even if you just want to be a good neighbor or a thankful gardener, it’s easy to give bees a source of water.
In the video below, I discuss how I use a simple birdbath to do it, but do make sure to give bees a surface to land in order to drink, otherwise they may drown. You can do this by adding rocks to the birdbath that rise above the surface of the water.
Watch the video below and for more info on providing water sources for bees, check out my colleague Nancy Buffington’s article, here.
