Talk: Honey from Flower to Jar
Honey bees and flowers co-evolved over the last 130 million years to be completely dependent on each other. Like many animals, humans love honey. But we've also learnt how to use other products from the honey bee colonies, such as beeswax, propolis, royal jelly and bee venom.
Master Beekeeper Marin Anastasov explores how bees find suitable flowers, collect nectar, bring it to the colony, and make it into honey. He will also look at bee behaviour
and how 50,000 individuals in a colony communicate with each other to form an effective and cohesive unit.
