Stay Cool: How We Can Use Honey Bee Thermoregulation To Keep Better Bees
In this lecture, Dr. Cook will discuss thermoregulation of bees, both in the summer and in the winter, and how beekeepers can use cold storage of honey bees to keep better bees. This lecture was written specifically for beekeepers.
This event is kindly sponsored by Bord Bia, whose purpose is to bring Ireland’s outstanding food, drink and horticulture to the world, thus enabling growth and sustainability of producers.
