HOW TO RESPECT and PROTECT ASHY MINING BEES
Look where you pitch your tent or place your picnic rug during Spring when these bees are feeding their young in their underground tunnel nests. Don’t separate the mother from her babies. Avoid using any form of pesticides. We need the bees to pollinate our food.
