Bees are undoubtedly my favourite insect.
Not only are they fuzzy cute little things, they are also supporting a massive environmental load on their backs. In Ireland, they are the main pollinator of crops and plants, and worth approximately €85million to the economy every single year (Click here for more info). And yet people fear them, kill them, destroy their hives and weaken them by taking resources that they need to keep up the work. So, how about giving something back to these little unsung heroes? You can even make your garden/ window boxes/balconies etc. etc. prettier at the same time.
