Bee's Bee's Bee's

We are beekeepers again! after a year of having our bees cared for we have just got them back to the land we have two members that are learning all about how to care for the bee's. It is so interesting to learn about these amazing creatures.

I got a few pics of the ladies in there new bee suits.


Humans have kept honey bee colonies, commonly in hives, for millennia. Beekeepers collect honey, beeswax, propolis, pollen, and royal jelly from hives; bees are also kept to pollinate crops and to produce bees for sale to other beekeepers.

Depictions of humans collecting honey from wild bees date to 15,000 years ago; efforts to domesticate them are shown in Egyptian art around 4,500 years ago. Simple hives and smoke were used; jars of honey were found in the tombs of pharaohs such as Tutankhamun. (source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bee)
Bee's as Pollinators
Bees play an important role in pollinating flowering plants, and are the major type of pollinator in many ecosystems that contain flowering plants. It is estimated that one third of the human food supply depends on pollination by insects, birds and bats, most of which is accomplished by bees, especially the domesticated European honey bee.
