Bees and other pollinators are an essential part of our environment and play a crucial role in food production. Did you know they contribute the equivalent of more than £500 million a year to UK agriculture and food production by improving crop quality and quantity? They are also vital to our wider, natural ecosystems.
Here are 5 simple actions anyone can take to help pollinators
Grow more flowers, shrubs and trees.
Let patches of land grow wild.
Cut grass less often.
Do not disturb insect nests and hibernation spots.
Think carefully about whether to use pesticides.
