Nectar is a sugary substance that certain plants produce to attract insects and make them unwitting carriers of pollen – the fertilising element – from one plant to another. The nectar is generally produced in the deepest and most hidden part of the flower so that the insect has to delve into it, getting covered in pollen. This pollen is then deposited on the next flower the insect visits. Nectar is a diluted liquid used as food by many insects. Bees transform it into honey to use as energy when there are no flowers.

In apiculture this refers to the practice of moving the hive to follow flowering plants and seasonal and climactic changes. The nomadic beekeeper always moves the bees at night, and like a shepherd with his flock he follows the cattle-tracks in search of better pastures. Originally, the bees were moved when single flower honeys were produced or in order to find more productive areas. Or else it was linked to agricultural pollination. However, for some time now the term has also taken on the more dramatic meaning of fleeing from areas contaminated by pesticides and pollutants. This is part of the attempt to safeguard the kinds of honey obtained from flowerings that are rare or hard to collect. It is the beekeeper’s life and it represents a way of living in close contact with nature.
