Beehives installed on the Library rooftop

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is proud to announce to residents that beehives have been installed on the rooftop of the Central Library to improve and promote biodiversity in the City.

“These new residents will encourage the reproduction and survival of plants in our area. This is another action that promotes sustainable development for current and future generations,” explains Mayor Trudeau.

Due to its proximity and wide variety of plants, Terra-Cotta Natural Park will be the main source of food for these pollinators, who work within a radius of up to five kilometres. The bees will also help pollinate the flowers near the Library and City Hall.

Honeybees and humans live together easily and naturally; in fact, bees usually pay little attention to humans, unless their hives are threatened. Bees prefer to focus on producing their honey!

In order to understand the positive impact that these pollinating insects can have, the Central Library is offering a multitude of books to learn more about these flying insects with black and yellow stripes.
