To Improve Bee Habitat, Mow Your Lawn Every Two Weeks

Lawns can offer surprisingly good habitat for bees, but not if they’re mowed too often. New research suggests the sweet spot is one mow every two weeks. Throughout the study, scientists monitored bee abundance and diversity among the grassy acreage.
Their observations showed lawns mowed every two or three weeks hosted greater bee activity than those mowed once a week. 
Lawns mowed every two weeks featured the greatest abundance of bees, while lawns mowed every three weeks boasted a larger number of pollinated flowers and a greater diversity of bee species.
