London is fast becoming a hotbed for projects to help increase the declining bee population, as PSFK had earlier reported, and the latest to join this movement is artist Ben Faga, a graduate from London’s Royal College of Art. Under his new project ‘If You Build it, They Will Come’, Faga has installed boxes or ‘bait-hives’ containing special bee attracting chemicals, in close proximity to an existing hives. The bait-hives have been set up across London and Faga hopes to attract over 20,000 bees to his hives.
