The number of beehives installed on rooftops in Paris has reached an unsustainable density, leading to increased competition for food between honey bees and wild pollinators with a devastating impact on biodiversity.

The introduction of commercial bees into the social structure of wild bees points to new kind of colonialism and a form of green washing; in fact, many construction companies install beehives on their properties to increase their ecological credibility and obtain environmental certifications, thus increasing the value of the buildings.
