A swarm came to the Bee Ark

Yesterday, early in the morning, the bee ark got new visitors. A swarm is now dwelling in the experimental hive in the tree. We wish them a sunny summer!

In the image they are still deciding weather this place is suitable for them – but at 3 in the afternoon it was clear – they stay!

The swarm was brought by Arto Koljonen and kindly donated by Helsingin Seudun Mehiläishoitajat ry: www.hunajahelsinki.fi

Melliferopolis experiments with new ways of understanding bees, beekeeping and the ecology of the hive. The project examines the role of honeybees and other pollinators in an urban context and explores the many differing relations between humans and these insects.
