Natural Beekeeping

Top Bar ApiRevolution has begun! Lets make some inexpensive Top Bar Hives and let them be pesticide free on their own natural comb! Che Guebee is a rebel bee fighting for the survival of the Biodiversity we all depend on and which is seriously endangered by deforestation and mono-crop agriculture! What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Where do Che Guebees forage?

In case you wonder how this locality looks like forage wise for the bees here is the map to illustrate it. Our farm (and the apiary) is the red spot marking Alminde 19 and the near by city Hårlev is to the right. There are some small forest areas but most of them are planted forests so we can rather called them plantations which dont offer much, maybe bees can find lots of Aphid Honey Dew there which is better than nothing. All the fields you see in this photo represent conventional mono-crop agriculture which is sprayed several times a year with pesticides/fungicides/herbicides. I wonder how many colonies will make it through the winter with such poor and poisoned forage??? Time will tell ...
