In the garden plant a diversity of plants bees like peas, beans, basil ,lavender, marjoram, rosemary and beebalm.

Also if you can plant some flowers like , zinnia, asters, Echinacea, salvia, sunflower, poppies, and marigolds that would be helpful.

Try not to use  pesticides especially in the late morning. Read and follow the directions correctly when applying any pesticides.

Bees love sugar so  I make my own using 1c sugar and 4c water. It works great. Tie a wire or string around the top of the jar and hang  it where you want the bees.
