Beekeeping Talk & Demo – 12th June 2022

Sunny weather and a fascinating subject certainly got the gathered crowd ‘buzzing’.

One of our qualified beekeepers, Jem Negus, gave the talk on beekeeping and demonstrated the makeup of a standard national beehive.

Jem’s talk covered many topics including:
- The lifecycle of bees and why they swarm
- What the beekeeper needs to do to maintain a healthy colony
- How bees make honey

The viewable display frame containing a colony going about its business was a main attraction.
