Virtual Beekeeping Lecture – Observation Hives


Join beekeeper Henry Long for a discussion on observation hives.

Humans have been fascinated by honey bees for centuries and have built many types of hives to study the bees. An observation hive allows us to look in on the daily life of a honey bee colony and learn more about them, without disturbing the bees. Join us as beekeeper Henry Long tells us what’s it like to have bees living in his house. Henry will share his observations on colony actions when queens lay multiple eggs; the drama when bees decide to swarm and what really happens when they’re not raising brood in winter. He’ll also provide some tips for those who are interested in installing observation hives in their homes.

Pre-registration is required so we can send you a link to join, and space is limited. This class is free but we welcome donations to help offset programming costs. Registration closes at the start of the program. Automated live captioning will be available.
