Fertilizer Safe for Bees are Biofeed Products
Fertilizer Safe for Bees are any product that is designed to only promote growth and has no pesticides or herbicides in them. If a fertilizer contains nothing that kills, then it is safe for bees.
Biofeed® fertilizers and soil conditioners have always supported those who plant and care for fruit trees, crops, gardens, and flowers. Our founder believed the products he created should work in harmony with nature.
So, since 1986 this is what he has done. Decades before the current focus on conservancy, sustainability, eco-friendly, and chemical-free focus.
We love bees. Without these industrious little pollinators we would starve. We are sharing information from The Bee Conservancy to spread the word on how we can all do our part to support our bee populations.
The Bee Conservancy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting bees, safeguarding the environment, and securing food justice through education, research, habitat creation, and advocacy. They strive towards a day when all bee populations thrive in protected habitats, and are supported by an engaged global network. We share below the top 3 of 10 ways you can support bee populations.
1. Plant a Bee Garden
One of the largest threats to bees is a lack of safe habitat where they can build homes and find a variety of nutritious food sources. By planting a bee garden, you can create a habitat corridor with plants that are rich in pollen and nectar. You don’t need a ton of space to grow bee-friendly plants — gardens can be established across yards and in window boxes, flower pots, and planters. You can also get involved with local organizations and governments to find opportunities to enrich public and shared spaces.
2. Go Chemical-Free for Bees
Synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, and neonicotinoids are harmful to bees, wreaking havoc on their sensitive systems. Avoid treating your garden and green spaces with synthetics. Instead, use organic products and natural solutions such compost to aid soil health and adding beneficial insects that keep pests away like ladybugs and praying mantises.
3. Become a Citizen Scientist
Join a global movement to collect data on our favorite pollinators! Gather photos and other information about native bees and upload them to the iNaturalist app. Make it a group activity for friends by hosting a BeeBlitz event! Together, we can learn about the bees in various sites and cities and identify opportunities for nurturing them.
