The bumblebee was officially added to the endangered species list.
Go plant an organic flower native to wherever you are
Leave your “weeds” alone they probably aren’t hurting anything
Stop using/buying Roundup and all other insecticides, herbicides, pesticides.
If you have a bee problem (which almost never happens) call a local beekeeper! They will remove them safely free of charge
Bumblebees usually nest underground and just wanna be left alone! They won’t hurt you. To prevent destroying their habit during hibernation, avoid mowing yards until April or May. If you do mow, raise the blades to the highest setting
Please save my fat clumsy fuzzy friends I love them and they’re very good pollinators.
Little is known about the origins of this practice, although there is some unfounded speculation that it is loosely derived from or perhaps inspired by ancient Aegean notions about bees’ ability to bridge the natural world with the afterlife.
what i love about tumblr romanticizing bees is that a lot of us grew up being scared of them. but now there’s people appreciating their aesthetic, their nature, their existence, and it’s just nice
that doesn’t necessarily equate in people fighting for bees, or planting adequate flowers for them, but the chances for that happening are a lot higher. i know for a fact that i profited off those posts on how to help bees that were/are going around
i like the romanticization of bees. it gives me a tiny chunk of peace
girls were bees. gentle and soft but got known for their stingers. hopelessly working while nobody noticed; got yelled at for just doing their job. girl were doing their best and still got swatted out of the air like they were a pest. they got caught in glass jars until they suffocated. nobody looked twice when the bees were dying. nobody looks twice when it’s girls that are dying. somebody promises we’ll have robot bees soon and it’s a great idea. but did you know that bees dance, did you know they sing, did you know that they’re loyal and focused on community. you ever see a girl dance. this is what i mean.
