HoneyBee Biology & Seasons of the Hive

  • Mar 22, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Did you know honeybees:

• smell with their antennae and taste with their feet?

• each produce an average of half-to-one teaspoon of honey over the course of their entire lifetime?

• have two stomachs, four wings, and five eyes?

• may recognize individual beekeepers?

• the Queen bee typically lays more than her body weight in eggs…daily?

Gain a greater understanding of honeybee anatomy, life cycles, and the seasons of the hive to take with you on your beeyard visits--or attend out of general interest.

Cost: $15

    It was quite interesting. Look forward to learning about "candy boxes", "winterizing", "when to remove the honey", "how to remove the honey(which seems quite easy according to Kirk from Backwards Beekeeping Club" and the dimensions of the smaller top box. Thanks Fran

    Thank you Fran for a fascinating view into the Life of a Honeybee! You have inspired to want to raise bees in the future :)

    I would come if the meet is in Toronto. Is it? I planted a Mulberry tree (in the woods) and placed a stove pipe around the trunk and tied it down to the roots to keep the deer, rabbits, mice, beaver, etc, from gnawing at the bark...for a future bee adventure. I want to garden the area first with wild bee plants etc to ensure plenty of food for them. I am going to purchase thorn bushes in a circle before attempting to place a bee hive to keep bears out. But, I am sure that I could use more education. If it is not in Toronto, how far do I have to travel?

      Hi Iris. It's at 862 Richmond street west Toronto. The address should be visible to you on the event page above?
