Bee Forage

South Africa’s honey bees rely on both indigenous and exotic species (but mostly exotic species like the Eucalyptus), flowering crops, and suburban plants to provide important forage sources all- year round. Honey bees are also the most important generalist pollinators in our natural landscapes, and the most important pollinator for approximately 50 insect pollinated commercial crops in South Africa. It is of the utmost importance that we ensure that honey bee populations have good quality food supplies throughout the year.
