As a beekeeper it drives me nuts that companies make a lot of money selling chemicals that kill clover in lawns. As if clover is some kind of weed. Where does the demand for these herbicides come from? I like to think it can be blamed on clever marketing.
To a beekeeper clover is valuable forage. I celebrate the clover in my lawn (the dandelions too.) I enjoy watching the bees working flowers and going about their business. To that end, I want to share some pictures of honey bees foraging on white clover.
