    Bees have been hovering under the radar of legal texts for centuries. In fact, they are the only animals to which continental codes dedicate specific attention and whose legal framework has remained unaltered, despite many changes that have come about in the social, economic and biological setting of our planet. The progressive disappearance of bees combined with the profound crisis caused by the coronavirus obliges the consideration of a new vision of personal and collective health in which biodiversity protection is inevitable. Pollinating insects are key for the health of the planet and the balance of ecosystems. To a great extent our diet and health maintenance rely on them. This work seeks to lay the basis for a new consideration of bees in the legal realm. The EU is aware that the relative legislation is insufficient and obsolete. More protection for bees equates to better health protection.
