A sting in the tail

The EU announced today that it is to increase the amount of money it is spending to subsidise the beekeeping sector.

Over the next three years the EU is to inject €32m (about £26m) per year into national programmes to try to reverse the alarming decline in bee numbers.

There are beehives in every European country, including 274,000 in the UK. Spain has the most, with nearly 2.5 million.

A good piece of buzz-ness!
