Plants For The Bees



Bees are really good guys to have around! It can be fun to watch them work in the garden. Bees also pollinate many of the crops we eat. Generally, if you leave them alone, they will leave you alone too. The trick is to not swat at them. The most common way to get stung is when a bee gets caught in clothing or hair. It thinks it's being attacked by a predator and stings in self defense. Bees also provide us with delicious, sweet honey! They're totally awesome!
