Bee Activists

Every day, find a way, to do one small or BIG thing for the bees. We would love to see your photos, videos, news articles and advice on how we all can do our part to bring awareness to 8% of the population.

Why only 8% you ask? 8% is the number of people it takes to make an idea spread like wild fire. Contact us on Facebook and share your story!

Bee Habitats

Did you know that most flowers and plants at your local garden shop have been contaminated by bee killing neonics?

Most garden shops and nursuries treat their plants with a form of systemic herbicide or pesticide that stays with the plants for up to 4 years.

You cannot wash this chemical off.

When a bee, lady bug, dragonfly or other native pollinator visits the plant in your yard, you are damaging their ability to remember how to get back home.

Some times killing them out right.

Use organic or natural plants, seeds and flowers only!

Search for local organic, heirloom and bee safe plants, seeds and flowers.

BeeHabitat.com is putting together a world wide list of garden shops that label bee safe and/or sell bee friendly plants and garden supplies.

Please contact us to bee added to the free list.
