Save Local Bees™ Conservation Program
“Save Local Bees”was created on April 2018 by Johnson Group. Our program not only aims at saving the bees and their population, but also the shrinking fast beekeeping industry in Hong Kong.
How Does the Program Work?
The program starts with Johnson Group getting an order from clients to remove a beehive. Instead of killing all the bees with pesticides, we and beekeepers will collect and send the bees to the bee farms.
When the beekeepers get more bees, they can produce more honey for Johnson Group and other customers to buy so as to generate more income.
A beehive underneath a drain was reported. When we got there, we found the queen has already been taken probably by a bee hobbyist. Instead of leaving those “orphans” behind, we still brought them back to the bee farm and assigned a new queen for them. We knew if we left them unattended, they would die eventually in one month.
Late April 2018
A beehive was reported on the rooftop of an industrial building. We knew clearly that other pest control companies would just spray toxic pesticides and kill all the bees. Finally, we spent three hours under a bright and hot sunlight just to lead 40,000 of them into a bee bag. They are now living in a new home, taken care and protected by a local beekeeper.
