Australia: honey from the rooftops of the city. Australian bees have moved to the city.
Do not panic, though: it’s peaceful invasion and absolutely valuable purpose. It happens in Melbourne, where they were installed 500 hives on the roofs of houses and buildings, after a study has brought to light the almost total disappearance of bees from the capital of the Australian state of Victoria.
The project specialists of Melborne City Rooftop Honey project, have collected 400 swarms of honey bees to repopulate the territory of this species that, in recent years, has particularly suffered from the low winter temperatures.
With the help of many volunteers beekeepers, beehives have taken place in the city, especially on the roofs of bars and restaurants. Today, they will begin to reap the benefits of this project: the bees started to breed, so the adjacent crops are less at risk, and honey that is produced in Melbourne with the kilometer zero symbol appears to be highly demanded by indigenous gourmands!.
The purpose is multiple: on the one hand to save a species hunted by our urban landscape and replaced by parasites such as mites, on the other hand get quality honey zero kilometer. It will be interesting to see in what way they will change the urban landscape, and if they find design solutions worthy of the Bee
Eating honey is good, eating honey can make several good body surfaces, and when eaten in the right quantities and times, honey is not fattening as you tend mistakenly to believe. Honey is a product rich in healing and especially nutritional therapeutic properties is a food that as everybody knows, is produced by bees from the nectar of flowers or honeydew or sugary secretions occasioned by the parasitic insects that collect, process, store and leave to mature in honeycombs.
We hope that in case the bees will increase too much they already have a plan B (and not in Simpson style).
