His crazy videos have grabbed the internet’s attention and got the message across – and it seems he’s never been stung in the process.
As crucial pollinators, the tiny creatures are responsible for the production of around 70 per cent of edible flora consumed by the world’s population.
That equates to around £100billion worth of production each year.

‘Our professional team of beekeepers and agricultural engineers brings the scientific knowhow and environmental enthusiasm to work, connecting people to bees.
‘Our mission is to expand the honey bee population beyond Lebanon, having in mind one healthier and safer world to live in.
‘We are working against pesticides, fungicides, toxic waste, and climate change.
‘Bees also suffer from the use of traditional and old beekeeping methods.
‘Working with agricultural engineers, vets, medical doctors and research laboratories, we interfere here, at the point of harvest, to save the bees, refine their honey, train keepers, and make the planet a better, safer and cleaner place.’
