Today is BeeVital's 26th Birthday!

Today is BeeVital's 26th Birthday!

It has been a long journey to where we are today and we wouldn't have achieved it without Werner and his son Dominik.

The company was founded by Werner in the late 80s (26 years today!!), originally as a honey trading company. When trading honey it became obvious of the necessity of beekeepers to actively care for their bees' health. Werner started to work on solutions! However solutions that would not harm the bees, influence the quality of honey or harm the environment!

Since 2002, based on a small but active team, we provide our solutions to beekeepers around the world. We started in Austria and have steadily increased our presence to 22 countries!

We at the company are glad of our success and plan to continue #‎SavingTheBees

 

Happy Birthday BeeVital! #‎HappyBirthday #‎AllesGuteZumGeburtstag #‎AllesGute

Help on Bee Wings

Help on Bee Wings

The Amazingness of Bees

We already know that bees are pretty awesome! But apparently the list just keeps extending of how amazing these little guys (or should I say gals) are!

The honey bee has been around for millions of years, and are specifically known as Apis mellifere which means honey-carrying bee. They are extremely environmentally friendly and are vital pollinators! Bees are the only insect, to produce food that is eaten by humans. Not only healthy, but extremely yummy, honey contains all the substances to sustain life: including enzymes, vitamins, minerals & water!

A new program introduced in the Ukraine in 2015, ‘Help on Bee Wings’. It is a chance for the wounded and injured veterans the help gain self confidence and hope in life and work. The ‘Brotherhood of Ukrainian Beekeepers’ has implemented this cause to help with social and rehabilitation of war veterans.

Their mission is to help veterans gain confidence through beekeeping, while also helping them to have careers as beekeepers. This will help them with psychological rehabilitation and social adaption, working together to have a normal life after the war and gain skills in beekeeping with the help of existing beekeepers.

This Program gives a chance to the veterans who are injured physically and morally to gain a profession of the beekeeper and believe in themselves and in their future. Being a part of this community has also educated these men on the need to protect the bees!

Only time can heal wounds however, through the help of beekeeping, these men have been able to have a new meaning in life while acquiring skills of a new profession and attitude towards beekeeping! What’s more, they can provide their family with honey which in turn has so any benefits!

They intend to extend this cause to help many more veterans in the Ukraine. They have been inspired by the positive results helping the men and helping with the general improvement of the environment, while caring for the conservation and protection of bees!

It is intriguing – what else will we discover about this amazing little creature!
