Easy Garden Project: DIY Bee Bath

Leave a comment

Yesterday I made a bee bath for the bees in my garden. Bees need water but they also need a safe place to land while they drink. Make this easy bee bath to encourage the bees to stay in your garden!

Find a shallow plate with a little lip and clean it out. I used a pot saucer. Fill it with marbles and or rocks. DSC_2523 DSC_2524

Fill the plate with water making sure to leave some of the rocks uncovered. I filled mine quite high because it is so hot in Sacramento that I am sure the water will evaporate quickly. DSC_2525

Add a space astronaut to greet the bees.
