Urban Beekeeping

The Pollinator Highway team has started cooperating with the Tallinn Beekeepers 'Association, the Estonian Beekeepers' Association and Elering to offer new locations for beekeepers in Tallinn to keep bees. We have mapped possible new locations for the hives along the Pollinator Highway.,


If you are keen to learn more about the good practices of urban beekeeping, please take a look at this manual here . The manual was compiled by the Tallinn Beekeepers' Association. You can get an overview of the existing beehives in Tallinn here: .

  • Bees play an important role in our ecosystem as they pollinate plants and help them to reproduce.

  • There are more than 20,000 species of bees in the world and more than 300 species in Estonia. The best known of these is the honeybee. The honeybee is one of the few species that has been domesticated by humans.

  • Honeybees help to pollinate our food plants (fruits, berries, etc.), but they also offer us various beekeeping products: honey, pollen, propolis and bee's milk.

  • The life cycle of the honeybee family is many years. The bee colony consists of 1 queen bee, 500 drones and up to 60,000 worker bees.

  • Pollinators are very important! 87% of the world's flowering plants need a pollinator - a bee or some other animal.

  • For bees to stay in good health, it is important that people stop poisoning the plants, start mowing half as much and let the honey plants grow and bloom!
