The ongoing shortage of bees has caught the attention of Flea. The bassist for the Red HotChili Peppers has been doing his part to increase the world’s bee population by becoming a beekeeper.
TMZ says that Flea started beekeeping as a hobby a few months ago. In July, he added three beehives to his backyard. It’s estimated that he has approximately 200,000 bees, with each hive holding more than 60,000 of the insects. A few weeks ago, he posted the above photo to his Facebook page with the caption, “Deep to the hive super organism. I love my bees. Flea’s bees.”
