Make a Bee Pub! ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ๐Ÿบ

March 25, 2020

A good thing to do for your bees while staying at home?ย  Make a Bee Pub! ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ๐Ÿบ

ย 

Bees need to drink, but they can get wet and drown trying to drink from flat open water.ย  As seen below, I found one of my veg trugs had built up a few cm of rainwater in the bottom, and still some bees had drowned in it (there are hives nearby, so I have more than you might expect in general).

ย 

So!ย  Making a bee pub is easy.ย  You will need:

- a shallow tray

- stones, or marbles, or similar

- water

ย 

Put the stones in the tray and add water until they are about half covered - so the bees can have good footing out of the water while they drink.ย  That's it!ย  You can make it as fancy looking as you like, of course ;)
