Bee Class

Wireless! Whoot!

We're taking a break in the bee class. I just learned something fascinating! Nectar rich plants for hummingbirds won't do much for our hive. Bees do not recognize the color red and the plants that work to attract hummingbirds aren't as easily accessible to bees. Honey bees are very attracted to yellow, which is one of the reasons why yellow flower feeding ports are no longer recommended for hummingbird feeders.

I have to say, the class is huge! It looks like there are about a hundred people in here.
