Who is Geert Steelant?

Geert Steelant has been engaged in the fate of the bees for years and is committed to all fronts in the well-being and preservation of the bees.

Geert gives lectures in both inland (Belgium) and abroad about his way of bee-friendly beekeeping.

Our bees need your help!


Geert Steelant is not only an active member of the Working Group Natural Beekeeping (WNI).

He is becoming the symbol in Flanders (and beyond) of bee-friendly beekeeping with predatory mites.

Honeybee Valley has devoted a brochure to this: “Beekeeping according to Geert Steelant”.

Geert swears by the Warré method, which he applies in his own way with the introduction of predatory mites as a counterweight to the varroa mite.

You can download the brochure via the button below.

Geert is very active and has gathered a considerable network around him.

He works with various organizations and companies and the links to those companies can be found below. He works well with Biobestrijding in the Netherlands, where he buys predatory mites. He is part of the working group “Natural beekeeping” in Belgium and is a board member of the “Flemish bee institute” (VBI)in Belgium. Both websites contain a lot of information and tips about bees and beekeepers.

He gets his wood from the Leirman timber trade in Belgium and orders beekeeping equipment from Apimiel in France. He has a close collaboration with Honeybee Valley and as described above they have produced a brochure about how Geert keeps bees in a natural way.

The internships take place at La Ferme Hubert in the Ardennes and Geert also has his bee village there.

If we do not act urgently, the bees will quietly disappear. Cities, municipalities and companies can help our bees. There are many green zones in cities and municipalities as well as at companies. It would be helpful to exploit these zones for our bees. If every city or municipality and companies with a green zone would work with local beekeepers and ensure that there are funds to install hives, we would be a bit further.
