It produces high quality honey and even has a type of bee which is in danger of extinction: Carpathian honey bee (Apis Mellifera… Read More

More disgusting than killing baby bees and eating them (of course, after they were turned into a product called Apilarnil). But to eat them after they died… Tradition teaches us how to take advantage of bees all the time, when they are young, when they are adults and after they die. I love honey, pollen and propolis but this is massive exploitation, if you ask me. Like a revenge… Read More
