Nowadays everyone is advertising too many pure,organic or just health products which are hard to rate in terms of quality. I decided to trust the beekeeper! …
I come from Sikinos. I always thought that the local honey I used to buy was unique until I tasted the honey Nectarus from Parnassus! It won me immediately!
I tried honey Nectarus at my daughter’s house and I decided to order honey for the year, to enjoy it with my grandchildren!
We enjoy Spiro’s honey daily on our breakfast, but mostly we like using it as sweetener in Greek mountain tea!
The story of bees on Earth is numbering several million years. They appeared on our planet the Tertiary period at the beginning of the Cenozoic era, 65 million years ago, long before the appearance of man and is considered one of the oldest residents that still exists even today. It is one of the few species of insects that man tried to take advantage of, seeing that he would have some benefit. Since prehistoric times people knew how to get the honey and use it in their diet and for many centuries it was the only known sweetener. In our country, the principle of Greek beekeeping lost in the distant past of the legendary era. The gods of Olympus were fed with nectar and ambrosia!
Varroa destructor is an external parasitic mite that attacks the honey bees Apis cerana and Apis mellifera. The disease caused by the mites is called varroosis. Varroa mites can only reproduce in a honey bee colony. The photo below illustrates one of my mites destructed for good!!! he he he he… :))
