Are you curious about what goes on inside a beehive? Have you ever wanted to see the queen lay eggs, observe worker babies hatch out, or taste honey straight from the hive? Then join beekeeper Jim Bobb and go “Inside the Hive.” The class begins with an illustrated lecture to give you a better understanding of hive activity and hierarchy, followed by a venture out into the field to open and inspect Longwood’s hives. Bring your questions and get answers and insight into the fascinating world of bees.
