HBA Web-Vention, Saturday14 November 2020

Please keep the morning of Saturday 14 November in your diary. We will be holding a “web-vention” that includes many of the features that you would expect at a normal convention … but in your own home.

Celia Davis and Bob Smith, well-known and renowned speakers, will share their knowledge with us – please read on for more information.

But that’s not all. Expect a few of the other features you would normally find at a convention. More information will unfold here soon, so please keep coming back.  Registration will be available at the start of October.

Celia Davis – “The world of the honey bee Queen”

Bob Smith – “Pollen – Super-food for Honey Bees”

Celia will cover the structure and life of the honey bee Queen; practical ways to ensure that colonies are headed by fertile, productive QueensBob will talk about forage for honey bees including how far they go, what they forage on, what is best for them, etc
