About this book

Language: French

While the honeybee, highly regarded for its honey production, is widely publicized, we know less of a wild species that exists, unique to Europe, and that also produces honey. Still, it faces the same problems as its breeding sisters, and is even confronted with additional challenges.

This work thus introduces the world of wild honeybees. It gives you the necessary information to locate colonies, monitor, protect, and capture a swarm to install a nest box (not a hive).

You will be able to welcome them home without having to do beekeeping: no intervention, no honey harvest ... you will leave all of it to the bees and allow them to raise themselves and face their challenges, and in the process will help to strengthen an endangered species.

Summary in French:
Si l'abeille domestique, élevée en ruche pour sa production de miel, est largement médiatisée, on sait moins qu'il en existe une espèce sauvage, propre à l'Europe, et elle aussi productrice de miel. Pourtant, cette dernière doit faire face aux mêmes problématiques que ses soeurs d'élevage, et même se confronter à des difficultés supplémentaires.

Cet ouvrage vous ouvre donc les portes du monde des abeilles mellifères sauvages. Il vous donne les clés pour repérer les colonies, les suivre, les protéger, capter un essaim pour l'installer dans un nichoir (et non pas une ruche).

Vous pourrez ainsi l'accueillir chez vous sans avoir besoin de pratiquer l'apiculture : aucune intervention, pas de récolte de miel... Vous laisserez toutes leurs forces aux abeilles pour leur permettre de relever par elles-mêmes les défis auxquels elles doivent faire face, et contribuerez ainsi à renforcer une espèce menacée.
