More than 500 million bees have died in the last 3 months. Bees have a really important role in the food chain - with around one-third of the food we eat relying on pollination mainly by bees.

- OPTION 1: Leave your grass to grow a little longer as it gives bees more shelter.
- OPTION 2: Grow a garden....even a small one. Growing plants encourages bees to pollinate.
