Bees In The City

Bees In The City

It's the latest trend in eco living. More and more people in our towns and cities are setting up hives on rooftops, in gardens, allotments and parks. The British Beekeeping Association has doubled its membership in just three years to 20,000, while some of our most famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Tate Modern, Fortnum & Mason are hosting hives.


A great way to boost the bee population as long as they don't swarm into my house because that could be a case for capybara

Years ago when I worked in a shop my boss disturbed a nest of bees in the stockroom. Got 21 stings. Not a well or happy man. Best left to the experts indeed

My husband (beekeeper) collected a couple of local swarms over the summer. Agree with astrojenny - never disturb them unless you're qualified in pest control or an actual beekeeper!
