Brayford Honeybees

Honeybees are vital pollinators and their decline has been documented thoroughly across the news in recent years. Our Brayford Campus is now home to an Observation Hive, installed here as part of a research project looking into insect cognition.

On this page, we’ve collated information about the bees, including blog posts, videos and links to our upcoming exhibition Bringing out the bees.

Staff, students and members of the public can visit our Observation Hive during our Meet the Bees events, which run throughout the Spring and Summer each year. Information on these events will be posted on the Environment team Facebook page.
