Honeybee Behaviour Course - Devon

Two-day NDB intermediate course

We will explore honeybee behaviour in areas such as seasonal population variation, communication mechanisms, foraging behaviour and organisation, workload distribution, and swarming. In each of these we are looking to know what is understood to be the factors that influence honeybee behaviour, and the possible outcomes in relation to different influences. Through understanding the natural behaviour of honeybees, we can better prepare ourselves as beekeepers to respond to their needs. This course may be particularly useful for those studying BBKA Module 6.

Tuition fee includes refreshments and light lunches, and is kept low due to a generous contribution from the FERA Healthy Bees Plan initiative.

Cost: £75

Location: Honiton, Devon
