Post 12. Beehives

Built in the 1990s, the beehives are home to more than two million bees that take advantage of the abundant surrounding flowers, especially the linden trees. Several people in Fang have bees, but this beehive farm is the most important.

Walti Zuber, the owner, explains his passion : “Honey is frequently mentioned in the Bible. Solomon in the book of Proverbs advises eating honey. For Jews, honey develops intelligence and spirit. According to the Qur’an, honey is a healthy food and an excellent remedy.

The Prophet Muhammad said that honey is a cure for all ills. The fascinating process of making honey begins when bees visit flowers. They suck the nectar that mixes with special enzymes in their saliva. It is this process that turns the nectar into honey. The beating of their wings ventilates it, by lowering the humidity and thus making it fit for consumption. “

On request, Walti Zuber ( 078 606 14 16 ) explains the life cycle of the bee, from birth to death, and the process of making honey.
