Water

Bees need to collect lots of water to take back to the hive. I’d noticed several in our garden collecting from an old container with some stinky water in it, which I couldn’t imagine was going to improve the health of our colonies…

I decided to give them something a bit nicer, with fresh water and some stones in it to sit on so they don’t drown. I put it in the same spot as the old container and they really seem to enjoy it. I had initially put it a couple of feet away, but it was completely ignored – bees are very precise creatures!
