Beekeeping in Lithuania
Of all the insects existing on the Earth (about one million species) the bee is one of the most useful for the man. It collects honey – the most miraculous, healing and nutritious product of all! In Lithuanian mythology bees are called holy God bugs and their destruction is considered as a sin, for it you can be even punished. It was believed that bees choose the host by themselves, therefore, bees became the corporate property of the old beekeeper and homestead, where the cluster was created, and owners became friends. Thus began a beautiful friendship of man and bee, which gave the new noble word – “Bičiulis“ (friend).
