A (more recent) history of the honey bee in Canada
In a previous article , we detailed how the honey bee did not originate in Europe but was slowly brought there (and eventually to Canada) for the production of honey.
Two bees for the best of both worlds
Honey bees are raised by beekeepers all over Canada. In 2015, there were more than 720,000 colonies in Canada used for honey production or for pollination services. Honey bees are just one species of bee used in Canadian agriculture with some farms making use of the other species’ unique traits.
