Bee Boost Keyring is needed now more than ever. On Saturday the 20th of March we celebrated the 2021 spring equinox, which marks the first day of astronomical spring. It’s this time of year that bees need our help the most.
Spring Blossom Watch – Give Bees a Boost
The temperature is changing, the sun is shining brighter and blossom is starting to appear, brightening up our days, which I think all of us are in need of at the moment. It’s this time of year when we’re reminded that in our ever-changing world, we can always rely on nature to be the source of many creature comforts.
Whether it’s the sound of birds singing in the morning, the smell of wildflowers and the buzz of all the wildlife. One thing to remember at this time of year is that some bees might need a boost. In some parts of the country, it will still be too cold or there may be fewer flowers for the bees to find food and it’s now that bees need a boost more than ever.
Use your Bee Boost Keyring in an Emergency Only
Your Bee Boost Keyring is not a toy. Think of it as an emergency CPR kit for bees. Whether it’s a solitary bee, bumblebee or honeybee, all bees should generally be fit enough to go about their duties without human assistance. The syrup we use in our bee boost keyring is called invertbee and it’s been adapted specifically for bee digestion.
Feeding a bee sugar water should only be done in a real emergency. Using Invertbee is a more favourable option but again, this should only be done as a last resort. You don’t want to encourage the bee to come back so only leave a small amount.
Do Not Leave Sugar Water Out for Bees
We’ve covered this before but as it’s so important it’s worth mentioning again. Your bee boost keyring is for emergencies only and you should never leave sugar water out for bees. Bees need to visit hundreds of flowers in order to receive a balanced diet. By leaving sugar water out for bees you might be doing more damage than good.
