Our bee community at Lappis
Did you know that bees are co-living with our students at Campus Lappis?
We work to be able to contribute to a sustainable society by creating attractive and sustainable housing for students. Part of this work is to promote biodiversity. The existence of bees is
a prerequisite for vegetation, wildlife and, by extension, humans. With beekeeping at Lappis we can help nature weave its magic and lay the foundation for a green and lush campus. In doing so, we benefit the environment and climate as well as contribute to a sustainable future.
Bees are specialists with specific tasks. The worker bee’s first task is to take care of larvae, build wax cakes, clean the hive and provide the queen with food. They then become guard bees that guard the hive’s entrance and eventuallyflying bees that collect nectar which is turned into honey. The task of the drones is to mate with young queen bees. When they succeed, they die.
