National Honey Monitoring Scheme
All BeesMAX sites are registered with the National Honey Monitoring Scheme so schools can understand where their bees are foraging and which flowers the bees visited.
Professor Pywell runs the Government Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and his associates recently published a report describing how one third of the native bee species in South East England no longer exist.
In 2019, the first ever UK-wide research report concerning honey gathered in the UK was published.
BeesMAX will be connecting the invaluable environmental research work of CEH with STEM activities and its weeks of science exploration.
The National Honey Monitoring Scheme will begin to receive samples of honey coming from these overwintered colonies in 2020.
