SAVE OUR BEES AND POLLINATORS

SAVE OUR BEES AND POLLINATORS
In response to alarming losses in insect numbers, Cornwall Council launched its Pollinator Action Plan in May 2019. Please HELP to make Cornwall a better place for pollinators – here’s some suggestions:
– Avoid garden pesticides (AKA Round-up) including aphid spray, slug pellets and weedkillers; and buy organic fruit and veg
– Let native plants thrive in your garden – flowering ‘weeds’ are nature’s own supply of colour, refuge and food.
– Plant pollinator friendly plants to boost food
– Leave areas of your garden undisturbed and naturally messy: make space for log piles, compost heaps and rough, grassy areas.
– Reduce the frequency of lawn mowing – let daisies, buttercups and clover come through and flower especially in early spring
– Help thirsty pollinators – A bird bath or sunken bin lid are ideal watering holes for parched bees and bugs
