Honeybee Behavior

Saturday | March 07, 2020 | 2:30 pm — 5:30 pm

Pets like dogs and cats are mammals like humans and easier for us to understand. The gap between honeybee behavior and humans is much greater. We tend to anthropomorphize bees which leads to them constantly surprising us, as they are insects, not humans. Learn about honeybee biology and behavior so you can better anticipate what they are doing in their hive. We will cover things like how bee orient/navigate, how/why the hive “decides” to swarm or make a new queen, and what a bee does when it’s sick or going to die. We will directly relate these to beekeeping in the Bay Area climate and how you can better manage your hive with this knowledge.
