Today Ohiophotgrl and I are at Possum Creek Farm enjoying a talk on bee keeping!
Mike (the bee keeper) is a multi generational bee keeper. He is a fourth generation beekeeper.
Did you know that there are more than 20,000 species of Wild bees! Thats a lot of bees!
Bees pollinate a third of what we use everyday….even Gas!
Bees live about 60 days. The Queen will live 3-5 years.
Hive tempature is approximately 70 degrees inside. The worker bees do this!
Don’t swat at bees. They just want to work and collect there pollen and water and go back home. You are not pollen. Just walk way from them.
The parks offer lots and lots of great kid/big kid friendly programs!
We are now a lot more knowledgeable about bees :0)
Wonder what we’re gonna do next?
