One of ecofective’s foundations is providing effective garden care solutions that are not harmful to wildlife. Most importantly, we are proud to supply Bee friendly formulas so you can harness a safe environment for Bees whilst maintaining plants and produce.
WHY ARE BEES SO IMPORTANT?
Declining populations of Bees throughout the world has been a concerning development in recent years. The most vital benefit of Bees is they help promote the availability of food via pollination. Many British crops rely on Bees pollinating to achieve successful harvests. It is also vital to other animals such as birds, who need good harvests to make grains and seeds available.
Being the best natural pollinators around, Bees are great for your garden, helping plants and flowers to bloom. But the plants in your garden also benefit the bees, giving them nectar to boost their energy levels. Vitally, it is the pollen in plants that provides Bees with all key protein and fat for a balanced diet.
THE THREAT OF PESTICIDES
One contributor to the decline of Bees has been the use of pesticides on plants and crops. If garden care products with pesticides are sprayed onto plants this can be fatal for Bees in the garden. Greenpeace report that studies have shown that pesticides can affect bees’ navigational abilities and breeding success. This leads to a reduction in population of Bees.
Due to the harmful effect on Bees, ecofective strive to create Bee friendly formulas that are effective and pesticide free. This ensures a safe environment where bees will feel more welcome.
