Bees are the most important pollinator in the mid latitudes. They do not only deliver honey as a sweet treat for us humans but also help deliver large parts of our day to day food, simply by being involved in spreading pollen.
“When bees go extinct, so will mankind four years later.“
In recent times society as a a whole focuses on bees, either because of honey, their pollination of plants or other ecosystem services. In kind, Desert Tree wants to help keeping the bee populace well and alive (at least to the extent that we are able). To fulfill this aim, we deployed several honey bee swarms in Bosnia in the spring of 2015 in a collaboration with a local bee keeper.
