Dandelions blooming along the side of our young forest
Our forest garden with the apiary at the back
Note the pollen ball on the bee's hind leg :)
Even solitary bees and bumblebees as well as all sorts of flies and beetles can feed on its flowers
Honeybee covered in dandelion pollen. Bees hairs are static and attract pollen, then the bee groom itself and collects it in the "basket" which is on their hind legs.
Here you can see the bees "tongue" (proboscis) sucking nectar.
The worst you can do at this time is mow your loan! I have seen my neighbor yesterday mowing all the dandelions in his garden. Bees need all the flowers in this damaged eco-system they can find. We damaged it remember that! So make sure to leave at least those which exist :) And please do not spray RoundUp (or any other poisonous herbicide) onto the Dandelions! Thank you!
