These unique Slovaks try to support the idea of maintaining honey bee crafts in the Tatras.
On the roof of one of the hotels in Strbske Pleso in the High Tatras, more than a year ago, they placed beekeeping, which was the highest in Slovakia. For the first time in the past few days, honey has been packed. The quantity is surprising.
"So far, we have only found more than ten kilograms of honey in only two nests. We plan to roll honey from two nests again during the next week. In plastic, they consume," said Erika Fočárová, hotel director.
These unique Slovaks try to support the idea of maintaining honey bee crafts in the Tatras. Beehive nests are placed so they have a direct trip to the forest. Care for bee colonies is done exclusively without using any chemicals, with pure natural products.
"We want to offer what bees produce after our registration to our hotel guests during breakfast," said Fočárová.
Already during nest planting, Jana Znášiková of the civil association Apis Carpatica said that despite the location of bee houses at an altitude of 1,380 meters above sea level, they assumed that bees would develop.
"There are good sun conditions on the roof, nests are planted to the east. There are lots of tubers, which are very stimulating to bees," he said at the time.
Even in hotels they consider nests to be a great asset. "We help the Tatra ecosystem, because pollinators are reduced, bees are also a healthy indicator of the environment," Fočárová added.
