Did you know the UK has around 267 species of bee?
This range of species, together with their exclusive diet of pollen and nectar, means bees are seen as the main pollinators of most of our wildflowers and insect pollinated crops.
The Campaign for the Farmed Environment, which is supported by the NFU, promotes a range of voluntary measures through which growers can offer food and shelter for pollinating insects.
There are three important actions that you can take to help pollinators:
- Provide habitats and food for wild insect pollinators
- Provide sites for honeybees
- Take care when using insecticides
