In observance of the recent celebration of World Bee Day under the theme "Bee engaged - Build Back Better for Bees," today's episode is very buzzworthy.Today we delve into a vast topic relevant to us here at Sustomi, and that is bees. Without bees, we wouldn't have the beeswax to make our beeswax wraps, and we wouldn't have the fantastic products that help keep all your food fresh. So in this episode, I brought in Julian from the Tasmanian Honey Company. He has had a long career in beekeeping and a long family history, so he's very knowledgeable about the world of bees. And we dug deep into the topics around bees, how beehives work, the impact of having them in the environment, if any, how to keep them healthy, particularly some of the threats that are currently around the bees, and how human actions have impacted the landscape.In This Episode, We Talk About:How do beehives function to produce honeyHow do you keep protein levels in hivesWhat's the best-balanced diet for beesHow to ensure that the honey you're getting is Manuka honeyThe ecological impacts of moving the hivesThe explanation behind bees as SuperorganismsWhat royal jelly isWhy do you need to breed Queen BeesThe potential threats to bee colonies across the worldSome of the viruses or diseases that kill the hivesThings people can do at home to help the beesThe impacts of plastics on beesResources Mentioned in This Episode: Tasmanian Honey Company WebsiteTasmanian Honey Company Instagram**** Which friends or family members would benefit from listening to this inspirational story?
