Beehives and loading gates rarely share the same plot of land. Four bee colonies, with 150,000 bees, have been living in the immediate vicinity of the 93 loading gates on the LOXX premises in Gelsenkirchen since the end of March. With bees on the farm, LOXX is committed to preserving the ecosystem.
Behind the tendering management office, hundreds of small honey bees scurry on a frame and fill the octagonal honeycomb with nectar. Holger Kischka, Head of Tender Management at LOXX, holds up the frame and carefully observes the bees and their production. “Everything’s fine, the bees look healthy and are busy delivering nectar,” he comments. The bees later produce honey from the nectar. Holger Kischka looks after the bees together with his colleague Sebastian Kimpel, who have both been hobby beekeepers for years. About once a week, they check to see if everything is fine, for example, if the bees are infected with dangerous mites. With the four beehives on its own premises, LOXX is committed to protecting insects. By pollinating flowers, they play a central role in maintaining biodiversity.
In the middle of an industrial area
The idea came about based on the initiative of LOXX managing director Alexander Brockt. “We can use the space on our site for the bees and make a small contribution to protecting the species. With our two beekeepers in the team, we can even house the bees here without any external support,” says Alexander Brockt. Although the site is in the middle of an industrial area, there are numerous smaller green areas where the bees can feed on nectar from daisies, for example. The meadows on the adjacent Rhine-Herne Canal or allotment gardens also offer the bees a sufficient variety of flowers. Finally, the hard-working insects fly around a 5-kilometre radius in search of flowers - which they will hopefully use to produce delicious, sweet honey.
