How to make an insect watering station?
Making a watering station is extremely simple. At the bottom of the bowl it is enough to pour expanded clay and gravel, it does not have to be a lot. Expanded clay will float on the surface of the water and insects will rest on it. Before placing them in the vessel, it is worth rinsing both components under running water.
Then add moss on top.
We can also add small sticks, cones or other natural elements. Remember, however, not to add fresh leaves and green twigs, because they will start to rot in the water.
Finally, pour clean water into the bowl so that the expanded clay floats on its surface.
It is best to place the watering station in a sunny place. Bees like warm water. Remember to check every day if there is enough water in our dish. At high temperatures, water evaporates very quickly.
