A honeybee colony is full of #girlbosses β€” from the #queenbee who lays all the eggs and keeps the colony stable, to the thousands of #workerbees who tirelessly maintain the hive and make honey. ♀Tag a hard-working boss who deserves props for keeping everything under control! πŸ™ŒπŸ’Ό #bossday

#didyouknow: Honeybees beat their wings 200 times per second. 🐝 On that note, here’s to hoping Monday flies by fast! β € β € P.S.

Healthy pollinators = healthy ecosystems. 🐝🌎🌱 Not only do bees pollinate nearly 1/3 of the food we eat, they pollinate about 1/6 of the world's flowering plant species β€” providing food and natural habitat that other wildlife depend on. Visit our website (πŸ”— in bio) to learn more about the pollination process and how it benefits us all. πŸ™

Now that we've wrapped up our #fallplanting, we're already counting down the days until spring when the blooms and bees return again. 🌸🐝 Double tap if you can relate!β € β € #qotd #gardenquotes #fallgardening #fallgardens #gardeninspiration #gardensofinstagram #plantsforbees #beesponsible #beesponsiblegarden

Anyone's #fallgarden still buzzing? 🐝 It's not uncommon to see #bumblebees this time of year β€” they're often one of the last foragers of the season, thanks to fuzzy coats that help them withstand the cooler temperatures. Don't forget to tag #beesponsible in your bee sighting photos! We'll be perusing them to get our bee fix until springtime. πŸ˜‰

A #pesticidefree lawn now is a #beefriendly lawn later β€” so avoid using weedkillers this fall! 🚫 When pollinators emerge in early spring to forage for food, they'll thank you for letting dandelions, clover and henbit grow. πŸ™β € β € #chemicalfree #lawncare #weedsforbees #lettheweedsgrow #clover #dandelions #letitbee #beesponsible

Sedum: It's the rock star of the fall garden. 🀩 When most other plants have faded, this drought-tolerant perennial (actually a member of the succulent family) keeps blooming to provide late-season food for bees and other pollinators. Comment below if you have sedum that's still going strong! πŸ’ͺβ € β € #sedum #stonecrop #fallflowers #fallgarden #plantsforpollinators #pollinatorgarden #perennialgarden #beefriendlyflowers #flowersforbees #beesponsiblegarden

Some bees have more, shall we say, discriminating tastes than others. So as we plan our gardens and landscapes for next spring, let's remember these specialist bees (including many #miningbee species) that need certain plants to survive. 🌱 According to @nationalwildlife, some widespread native plants that support early specialists include maples, serviceberries, blueberries and willows. Learn more about how we can lend a helping hand for early #nativebees via NWF's blog, #linkinbio. πŸ€β €β € β €β € #springgarden #beegarden #plantsforbees #plantsforpollinators #andrena #salix #willowtreeβ €β € β €β € #Repost @ribeswrench (@get_repost)β €β € ・・・⠀⠀ A male Mining bee perches on Coyote Willow catkins in the early morning.β €β €

Plant a tree, feed the bees! (Oh, and make the planet healthier too.) 🌳🐝🌎 Red maple, basswood and Eastern redbud trees provide an abundance of nectar when they bloom. While it varies depending on where you live, fall is generally an ideal season to plant trees and shrubs, allowing them to establish a strong root system before next spring. πŸ•‘πŸ‚ Ask your local tree nursery for advice or search the regional planting map on our website for ideas (link in bio).

It's National #DoSomethingNice Day. Bees do so much for us by pollinating 1/3 of our food supply and keeping our gardens blooming. Tell us something nice you've done for them! 🐝❀

That big smile you get when you do good for bees. πŸ‘Œ @tiffanithiessen knows what we mean! Buy a Don't Kill My Buzz t-shirt, and we'll donate $5 to @nationalwildlife in support of their pollinator conservation efforts, such as Garden for Wildlife. 🐝 Get yours via the #linkinbio. #shirtsforacause #beetee #savethebees #conservation #beethechange #ootd #makeadifference #beesponsible #Repost @tiffanithiessen with @get_repost ・・・ #dontkillmybuzz 1 in 3 bites of food we take relies on bee pollination. Without them, our food production would be in serious trouble. But bee populations have been declining at alarming rates. That’s why @Beesponsible created #dontkillmybuzz, a social media driven t-shirt campaign in support of @nationalwildlife and its pollinator-friendly, pesticide-free gardening and conservation efforts. And the t-shirts are super cute.
