Providing Water for Bees, World-Class Pollinators

Make a bee waterer to help hydrate pollinators.  Especially in drought conditions, bees need water.  Simply place marbles in a very shallow dish and fill with water to top of marbles.  In a divided dish like this one, I can fill some sections higher.  As water evaporates, there is always one section that is filled adequately.

The marbles are important.  If bees don’t have a place to land while drinking, they easily drown.
