Welcome To the Wonderful World Of Bees

What's small and hairy, makes a buzzing sound and is one of the most important things on the planet? You will not be surprised to discover it is a little insect known as Apis Mellifera or more commonly the honeybee.

It's estimated that at any one time there are around 1 trillion bees in the world providing an almost indispensable service pollinating many of our crops. From clementines in California to cabbages in China - bees are essential to the production of over a third of the food we eat every day.

Pollination alone would be enough to give the bee a prize of ''Insect of the Year'' but of course that's not all bees do. For the beekeeper - in return for providing a safe, secure home the bee gives the generous gift of honey and wax.

In this fantastic guide to keeping bees you will learn about the bees, the role of the beekeeper, how the beehaus works and much more. We hope that it will inspire you to keep bees yourself.

I’ve set up my beehaus and put in some swarm attractant on Friday. I went to check it today. No swarm, but 20 dead bees inside. What am I doing wrong please?

Do you anticipate having your beehaus available in the US in the future?
