Messages From The Wild

“I am passionate about inspiring others to help protect our insects, and in particular bees, and I think this is a really lovely, and different way to engage with a wider audience.” Jimmy Doherty

HOW TO RESPECT and PROTECT BUMBLEBEES

Avoid using pesticides of any kind. Protect wild flower meadows and verges. Don’t mow your lawn in May and consider mowing it less often. Leave the important lawn flowers for the bees.
