View full lesson: Bees have been rapidly and mysteriously disappearing from rural areas, with grave implications for agriculture. But bees seem to flourish in urban environments — and cities need their help, too. Noah Wilson-Rich suggests that urban beekeeping might play a role in revitalizing both a city and a species. (Filmed at TEDxBoston.) Talk by Noah Wilson-Rich.

    My guess would be that in the city the are garbage cans filled with leftover pop which is sugar. (Practically everywhere) So they collect it and make the honey. They may be making more honey but the quality would be poor compared to country made honey

    Also, bees will make you eat healthy… cause you will not dare to eat or drink sweet things where bees are around, unless you want to attract them 😀

    Perhaps there is more CO2 in the city's and the plants are working harder and there is more to do for the bees?

    The scientific part of my brain is like "Yes. Yes, quite good. We do need healthier and more bees." But the girly part is like "EWWWWWWWWWW, BEEEEESSS!!!"

    Where I live we have also huge (up to inch and a half) hornets.
    And they are never friendly!

  • Giorgos Filippas 6 months ago

    Yes, it is a great idea, but non polluting cars like electric are essensial for the health and quality of the honey. We need more environmentally friendly cities first, so we can put bees in them.
