Bees are the most important pollinators in the world and much of the food we eat depends on them. I am not just talking about the European Honey Bee though. There are many other species of bees who do a great job of pollinating plants and sometimes a better job than European Honey Bees. European Honey Bees are however the most prolific honey producers.
I enjoy beekeeping and I am passionate about all sorts of bees.
As well as keeping honey bees I also have habitats in my garden to encourage native bees and provide nesting areas for them.
