The ice has melted and the quarter million folks down the road almost
have all the power back on. The sun is out and temps should go up to
50's and 60's in a day or so. So, I am planning to get some clean-up
and prep work started.
What can I do to help out in bringing back some bees? As I am inside
a national forest, there is no widespread spraying here'bouts, and my
neighbors and I don't use harsh stuff except as a last resort in very
small areas. I don't want to KEEP bees, anymore than I keep bats,
even though I have mounted bat houses here and there.
I just want do do what might help.
Things I have considered is:
1. After I have burned and disked some meadows, putting in some
clover, along with the other native grasses.
2. Leaning toward bee-friendly flowers when selecting annuals this
Any other ideas?
