There are many people approached me to learn about urban beekeeping. Most of them wanted to keep stingless bees. Even some government agency such as NPark and Schools requested to collaborate with Nutrinest in keeping stingless bees. I have rejected all of them and here is the reasons.
The objective for urban beekeeping is to provide education opportunities for the public to understand about our local bees and how we can better interact with them instead of exterminate any if found! For this to be effective, keeping different types of honeybees is the key to achieve the goal. Public will get to learn and differentiate the different types of bees. the Ability to identify which type of bee will sting and which will not.
