Info Table: Adopt a queen, or give away a queen giftcard! – BeeSerious

December 20, 2018, 18:00 - 20:00

Everybody knows we have a large bee problem. The main cause is not pesticides or monoculture, but a small parasite: the varroa mite. Originally from Asia, it spread in a few decades all over the globe since the nineteen-fifties.

It would be a gigantic disaster for mankind if bees seize to exist. We need honeybees to pollinate a large percentage of our food, not just fruit and vegetables, but also tea, coffee, chocolate, nuts and wine. Even cotton, biofuels and of course mother nature itself.

To solve this worldwide problem, BeeSerious breeds bees that are resistant to the varroa mite. There’s a lot of money involved in this project, so BeeSerious needs all the help it can get. BeeSerious sells mead (homemade), honey (homemade by our bees) and adoptions. Get yourself a queen!
