Hives for Humanity

Honeybee Centre



A Bee's World

A bee's world has two elements, the bee hive and the outside world. The hive is the centre of the colony. It contains the queen (the dominating individual and mother of all bees in the hive), the brood and the food storage. The outside world is the source for their nutrition and the place where they interact with humans, either directly or indirectly.

Both worlds are interdependent. If the outside world is hostile, the colony has a hard time surviving. If the colony is weak due to disease, the bees will not pollinate as efficient with consequences on abundance of fruit and the variety of flowers.
