A Sting in the Tail

My Adventures with Bumblebees By Dave Goulson

SHORTLISTED FOR THE SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION 2013.

Once commonly found in the rriarshes of Kent, the short-haired bumblebee is now extinct in the UK, but still exists in the wilds of New Zealand, descended from a few queen bees shipped over in the nineteenth century. A Sting in the Tale tells the story of Goulson’s passionate drive to reintroduce it to its native land and contains groundbreaking research into these curious creatures, history’s relationship with the bumblebee, the disastrous effects intensive farming has had on our bee populations and the potential dangers if we are to continue down this path.
