Leaving weedkillers and bug sprays on the shelf is one of the best things you can do to help bumblebees. Using pesticides can harm the pollinators visiting your patch in a number of ways, including:

  • Killing bumblebees directly (even if they are not the intended target).
  • Affecting bumblebees’ ability to find flowers and reproduce.
  • Destroying the wildflowers which bumblebees need for their food.
