Bumblebees blog post
These incredibly large insects are amazing pollinators of vegetables and tree fruits! They are extremely important to have around to help pollinate our food.

How to Attract or Encourage:

  • First off, make sure that you do not use any pesticides in your garden! This can harm your beneficials as well as your pests.
  • Bumblebees like a natural landscape. They especially like bee balm and any other bright colored flowers and plants. They like purple, blue, and yellow flowers.
  • It helps to have a source of shallow water for the bumblebees as well.
