Research project “The honey bee in climate change”

This project aims to research the effects of climate change on the life cycle of the honey bee.

Data is collected to develop a new approach to beekeeping.

The research is not aimed at improving or increasing honey production performance. Probes for the benefit of the honey bee. (Health maintenance)

Not only the wild bees, but also the bee colonies cared for by humans follow the rhythm of nature. It is only possible to interrupt it and force the bees to proceed in a different way with massive interventions. If you orient yourself on the Gregorian calendar (civil calendar), you will follow a different rhythm than the bees, especially in the first half of the year. At this time, which is so important for the development of the bees, one will not meet its demands!

Concrete assembly instructions only make sense if you know for which region or for which natural area they were written or if you make them independent of the Gregorian calendar.

In a natural beekeeping one will always follow the phenological calendar.
