Are Bees protected in the UK

The simple answer is no.
There is no mention of any bees in the wildlife and countryside Act 1981, so it’s a little bit of a mess when people think these are protected in the UK.
We are lucky that bees are not protected because in the wrong environment. For example, a Honey Bee Hive at a nursery has to be removed or treated.
