Conservation Status: Endangered
Species: UK Honey Bees
270 bee species
There are over 270 bee species in Britain ranging from the well known honey bee, to bumblebees and the solitary bee. The UK Honey Bee, with it’s black and gold stripes is well-known as a hive bee and honey maker. It has been semi-domesticated for thousands of years to produce honey for human consumption. But these bees are now in trouble thanks to the use of pesticides and the destruction of their natural vegetation. This Bee is a vital pollinator of flowers and crops and, as such, we are incredibly excited to be able to offer a colony a home.
