Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has found himself a new hobby…

The musician has reportedly installed three huge beehives, brilliantly named ‘Flea’s Bees’, in his back garden in an attempt to try and bolster the dwindling bee population.

According to TMZ, each hive contains over 60,000 bees and Flea has quickly “mastered the craft” of beekeeping, despite only taking up the hobby earlier this year.

Managing to find the time whilst the band aren’t touring, Flea has been documenting his adventure on his Instagram account:
