The UK honeybees are in sharp decline, with up to 50 per cent of colonies dying out each year. Our environment cannot afford further decline as over 85% of the earth’s plant species require pollinators to exist.
BeesMax is a not-for-profit company with the sole aim of reversing the decline of the UK bee population.
