There are many threats to honeybees. The philosophy of today sometimes forget to learn from nature. Many times we are too quick to use what we have invented and which seems beneficial – as plant protection chemicals and management methods for keeping bees.
Honeybees, like everything else, adapt to function well – to certain limits. And drawbacks may well show up – as higher susceptibility to diseases and less resistance to pests and parasites.
Elgon bees are bred for better resistance and managed aiming at cooperation with nature. The goal is to not use any treatment, but to help the bees develop and maintain highest possible life fitness.
They are easy to handle, make a good crop of honey and don't swarm easily if they get increased living space just before they need it during their expansion in the first part of the season. Elgons are a good combination of Buckfast bees, Monticola bees and with some influence of Sahariensis bees.
On these pages my aim is to share my efforts, which hopefully will inspire and help you to help our honey – the bees!
I'm working with bees and media, love nature, family and people. But most of all The Creator who made it all possible. This site and the blogs are mostly about the fascinating world of honeybees. If they disappear the world wouldn't be the same, if at all. Pictures may be used for personal use. For other purposes contact me (se below) – Enjoy!
