How do I prep my yard/surrounding area before I get my bees?
Hi all! This year I took up gardening (veggies, herbs, cannabis haha), and part of that was lazily tossing some native wildflower seeds out back. They all blossomed around and my backyard looked lovely. I have at least a 50×50 open field with short grass and wildflowers now.
I was hoping this would bring bees, but I’ve literally seen 1 all summer. I don’t know if this is because there’s not a lot of bees around me or if my yard isn’t considered bee-topia
I’m going to start my bees next year so I have a chance to get a head start on prepping. What should I do to make sure my bees are happy near the hive?
