I think I came across a much better idea about the whole ad concept :-)

I like the look of the flying bee a little more if it means anything. Something strikes me as odd about the sitting bees pose.

Re: Zurich honey directly from the bees...(via the beekeeper, if you prefer)

Hello everybody!

just a quick note to understand how interested would people be in a scheduled free monthly Web-inar on:

'Everything you always wanted to know about bees, but never dared asking"

well, another way of socializing around a coffee (or a gin&tonic, if you prefer) on these CoVid times.
Webinar curated by a real beekeeper :-) :-) :-)

Would like to propose THURSDAY 4th of MARCH @ 18h30, for 1 h. If you are interested, please answer (or 'like') and I will PM you the invite to the Teams video-meeting.

For this first event, I suggest a program that suits the current dates
1. It is February, there are no flowers, but there are bees already around. Are they crazy?
2. How many bees are in a colony now?
3. Why there are no males in the bee colonies for 6 months? How do the workers feel?

on a more serious note (although, all of the above is serious also), we can talk about the yearly cycle of the bees (and beekeeping), when, how many, and why there are one, two, three or up to four harvests of honey (in Switzerland, only one or two!), and answer questions that you might have on the subject.

Too bad we cannot do the honey-tasting. We'll leave that for when this virus gets tamed....

Looking forward your 'likes' :-)

Re: Zurich honey directly from the bees...(via the beekeeper, if you prefer)

We have just issued the 2nd newsletter of the Year

How many species of wild bees are there?
Even if almost invisible, why are they so important for nature?
How can I make a wild-bee hotel for my balcony or garden?

What is Angelina Jolie doing for bees?
What do Bees & Swiss people have in common?

So many questions, so little time.... All this, and much more, in this issue! A 15 minutes read to quench your curiosity, and that we hope you will enjoy. Viel spass!

Re: Zurich honey directly from the bees...(via the beekeeper, if you prefer)

Dear honey-lovers
the latest issue of the Urs & Izzy's Bees newsletter is hot from the oven!

Have you ever wondered how bees secrete wax? - Not that they have ears like us-, how fast they build the honey comb, or how they make those perfect hexagons? Is it healthy to eat wax? What can you do with Bees wax?

No? you have not wondered? Well, now that I have instilled the doubt, surely you'll enjoy the 15 minutes read of our Newsletter!


you can find it here down in German (on the same blog site, in English)
Viel Spass....

Hi Izzy
Why don't you guys start a Youtube channel?
I follow Texas Beeworks on Youtube and love the videos she posts.
She also has many videos on Instagram and TikTok.
It is quite fascinating....
Cheers

Hi logo123,

we'll give it thought. have a great weekend!

Zurich honey directly from the bees...(via the beekeeper, if you prefer)

Here we go!....the Spring newsletter has arrived!

Do you know why freshly harvested honey is runny? and why does it settle and solidify (or crystallizes) with time? What is creamy honey?

Do you want to be a smart-ass and know all that? Read our newsletter!

All that and much more, for a lazy rainy afternoon .... in the summer time....(like the song goes)

Hi Urs & Izzy!

Sounds lovely. Very interested in a 500g jar. I live in Zurich. Could we organize a honey meet up?

Hi Izzy,

By chance do you have any forest honey or is it still too early in the year?

Hi Ato, you are just a little bit early in the year. In a normal year, we would harvest forest / summer honey next weekend... but given the super-bad year with tons of rain and low temperatures, we are giving a couple of weeks more to the bees to harvest (crossing fingers that it stops raining at some point...)

This weather is super good for herbs and greens, superbad for flowers and nectar...(and with hail-, expect higher prices this fall for any fruit - and even commercial honey!)

Will shout out here when Summer honey is available, thanks!
have a great week

Re: Zurich honey directly from the bees...(via the beekeeper, if you prefer)

To all of the honey lovers out there... sorry for the lack of news -- we were mourning two of our colonies who unfortunately, starved to death
(these were the weakest of our young colonies, to which we did NOT take any honey from this year, because they needed it for themselves).

This year has been truly fatidic for bees, and for bee-lovers.

In our bi-monthly newsletter, we pose you the difficult (moral) questions that we posed ourselves this year - should we leave nature follow its course, or should we intervene to save our bees?...
Ok, ok, we also talk about more positive themes, like: are bees intelligent? (spoiler alert: YES, they are! they even understand the concept of zero, which few animals grasp) and, can bees see, hear, taste, smell and feel like us...? (you'll have to read the newsletter to know the answer to that one!)

Here it is in German version
https://baerenhonig.wixsite.com/zuri...mer-honig-oder

and the English (V.O)
https://baerenhonig.wixsite.com/zuri...er-honey-or-no


Wishing you a wonderful week!
