Bee Well ~ Helping bees get clean water in the city.
How do bees find the Bee Well? ~ They easily sense water and clay.
Why do bees prefer mud and clay with their water?
~ Clay cools and cleans water, plus bees use it as a filter.
~ Mud and clay have essential nutrients for bee's immune systems.
Where should the Bee Well be located?
~ Near the hive is best, gives bees more energy to pollinate.
~ Where to divert bees, at swimming pool, outdoor sink or dog dish.
Watering Spike ~ Use less water and have less hassle!
No soil erosion ~ Unlike conventional watering, where nutrients are washed away.
No root rot ~ Maintains soil moisture with vapor, keeping it hydrated not soaked.
No water spills ~ Perfect for hanging planters or balconies where dripping is bad.
No worries watering ~ Creates ideal soil moisture for most vegetables or other plants.
No problem vacation ~ Watering is easily scheduled. For longer trips, a larger bottle!
What makes this system so practical?
It’s proven ~ Used at least ten thousand years as food crop irrigation in dry regions.
Highly efficient ~ 5-10 times less water other spike systems, drip or soaker hoses.
Use in established pots ~ Digging softly with fingers allows the roots to survive.
Easy to use ~ Water level is visible, and spike can be removed for refill; no spilling.
Why is there less evaporation?
The ceramic system cools both water and soil, creating a stable condition.
Because more heat escalates cooling, this system is self-regulating.
Loosen soil softly with fingers and spread roots apart.
Press spike solidly into soil to support weight of bottle.
If your bottle falls over easily, lean against something.
