Honey Bees, Plants and Balanced Nutition, The Bee Academy, Saturday, 10. August 2019


We will examine in detail flowering plants and their importance to bees. In particular students will gain an understanding of the special relationship between honey bees and flowering plants, including the processes of pollination and fertilisation, cross pollination strategies, pollinator signals and an appreciation of the major bee forage plants in Scotland. Honey bees rely entirely upon pollen as their source of proteins, lipids and other essential body-building materials. We will examine all aspects of pollen, from its production in flowers to its collection and utilisation by the bees and stress the importance of balanced nutrition for a healthy colony of bees. This course includes Microscopy work and a botany walk.
