Event description

Description

Discover how easy it is to get started as a novice beekeeper! Paul Lacelle, board member with the Ontario Beekeepers Association, will answer common questions such as: Where do you get bees? What considerations do you have to keep in mind before you start? Why do bees forage? What are the different types of bees in a hive and what are their roles?

Honeybees have been around for millions of years. Honey was found in the tombs of Egypt and it was still edible! Did you know that the average honeybee produces only about 1/12 teaspoon of honey in her lifetime? Honeybees collect nectar from about two million flowers to make half a kilogram of honey! The flavour and colour of honey is determined by the different types of nectar from flowers.

If you’re curious about honeybees and how you might have your own, this presentation is for you!

The presentation will be in English only with a bilingual Q & A.
