Wednesday's WISDOM from the hive . . .

Did you know? Each colony has a unique odor so the bees always know where home is. A pheromone is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species.

How can you help save the native bees?
๐Ÿ Avoid the use to pesticides.
๐Ÿ Leave a few bare patches of soil in garden beds for ground nests.
๐Ÿ Plant native plants to your region that flower throughout the season.
๐Ÿ Don't clear out all your "dead" plant material. These stems and limbs are where solitary bees make their nests.
๐Ÿ Learn more about these amazing creatures from organizations like Xerces or Pollinator Partnership.

Did you know that honey is really bees winter food? Throughout the warmer months bees will eat pollen, nectar, and some honey, but honey's primary purpose is for the hive to survive winter! This is why beekeepers have to be very careful to leave enough honey for the bees to make it through the colder months.

Our first Climate Camp in Fort Wayne was a blast! ๐ŸŒŽโœŠ Campers explored how climate change affects wildlife and pollinators in Indiana, and discovered ways they can take climate action locally! Camp activities included planting milkweeds to protect pollinators, hiking through Fox Island Park with naturalist Jeff Ormiston, upcycling pizza boxes to make solar panel ovens for S'mores, learning about our waste journey, exploring the fascinating lives of honeybees with Southwest Honey Co., and hearing from the amazing Sammie Vance who founded the Fort Wayne area's Buddy Bench Project--an initiative that aims to eliminate loneliness while recycling plastic caps into benches for schools. โ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿ‘
