A quick and easy suggestion brought to our attention by state Rep. Fran Cavenaugh.
“During winter months there are fewer flowers and other sources of food for the bees.Water is also scarce and so many bees drown as they try and drink from swimming pools.
Grate an apple and add some water in a bowl. The bees will be able to get the sugars from the fruit and drink the water and not drown as they can stand on the fruit pieces.
Our bee populations are threatened, let’s give them all the support we can,” suggested Baruch Inbar in a post on Facebook.
