Bees are buzzing again for another year

Friday, June 8, 2018

     

Our honey beehive is officially open for its second season. Our friends from Alveole were here to install our new hive on the rooftop at our Moatfield campus. It's super strong with the Queen looking healthy and busy! Our second round of BVG honey will be sweet indeed.

Fast facts:

Bees are vegan! Wasps are carnivorous which makes them aggressive.

Bees usually visit trees, plants and flowers within a 5 km radius of their hive.

Worker bees live for about 30 days.

A hive has 50,000 bees but only one queen, who lays 2,000 eggs a day.

Unlike mosquitos and wasps, honeybees rarely sting. When they do, they die immediately.
