bees, honey and other sticky subjects

Sunday, August 08, 2004


I've just been alerted (via an incoming link) to a website that I'd not heard of: Apiservices. Based in France, it hides its aims and origins very well, but somewhere (that I can't find again) it said it had the support of the UN, the EC and various governments and aimed to promote beekeeping especially, I think, in developing countries.

Anyway, it has lots of interesting information (even though this blog is listed under “products”) and statistics on beekeeping in many countries. Did you know that in 2002 Spain and Greece each had 4,000 professional beekeepers while Germany, UK, and Ireland had only 290, 200 and 15 respectively? Luxembourg had only one.
