The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist has over 200,000 insects in his apiary.
Musician and nature lover Flea has been getting into beekeeping. His backyard is reportedly home to three hives containing over 60,000 bees each, and he’s been posting snapshots of his new hobby on Instagram with captions like “Pleezus more beezus”.
His efforts are intended to help combat the honeybee’s drastically declining population, a result of what’s known as Colony Collapse Disorder. As Rolling Stone reports, later this year he’ll be playing a climate action concert in Paris with his Atoms For Peace bandmate Thom Yorke and Patti Smith.
