Why Bees Matter!

May 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Join science journalist/ ‘Hive Tour’ author Phil Frank for this intensely visual tour of the extraordinary lives of honey bees & why they are irreplaceable. They’re unlike any other insect/pollinator.

The presenter is the Webmaster & ListServ & Swarm Alert Monitor for the Montgomery County Beekeepers Association. Here’s a video of his kitchen hive:

A colony of tens of thousands bees behaves as a single animal. Learn how they make honey (very labor intensive), what’s killing them (not what you think) and how we can help them. Also, learn about the sex life of bees, and lots of fascinating bee facts.
