  1. Is it a pollen supplement, or a nectar supplement? I thought pollinators carried pollen from flower to flower in return for the nectar, which as I understand it is just sugar water

  2. if you’re going to repost at least change the tittle, but since it’s the same as other reposts i don’t doubt this is a bot

  3. Posted again. Hey OP, why don’t you do a search before you post something that’s been on here a few times:

    1. Go to the sub you want to search.
    2. In this case you would go to the r/educationalgifs and in the top box you would add your search term, “educationalgifs “feed bees”
    3. You would’ve seen that this exact term would’ve shown you 9 previous post of this exact item.

  4. Does anyone know whether they prefer pollen from the supplement or actual plants? If they prefer the pollen from the supplement, would that mess up the reproduction cycle of the plants that do survive during the drought?

  5. Would it help if these are put out there for bees even if we don’t necessarily know if they are starving and where do you buy them?
