Beekeeping

Bees are kept for their honey and beeswax. The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by humans.

Bee keeping is popular around Brighton and Hove- the local association is the Brighton and Lewes Bee Keeping Association. Bees are essential for the environment – over 90% of crops depend on honey bees  and that if the honey bee died out  humans  race could die out within 4 years. Bees have six legs, two eyes, and two wings, a nectar pouch, and a stomach.Their wings stroke 11,400 times per minute – that’s what which makes the buzzing sound.
