Honeybee Behavior (or Why Did My Bees Do That?)
March 22, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Learn about honeybee biology and behavior so you can better understand what your bees are doing and how you can help them. 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. This is a class that will help you see the underlying concepts of beekeeping and enable you to make better decisions with your hive when you inspect.
All experience levels of beekeepers from beginning to advanced will learn something in this class.
Instructor: Jennifer Radtke has been keeping bees in her backyard for 14 years, and has developed the beekeeping education program at the Oasis.
