ABC’s of Honeybees

The principle focus of the presentation is honeybee behavior. Of course, it covers stings and honey. It starts with a who’s who and who does what in a ‘queen right’ hive. It discusses curious honeybee behaviors, including swarming, ‘waggle dance’, pollination and colony collapse, as well as an outline of specific resources to help forestall the impending demise of the region’s bee population.
