BEES: 101, longevity, stings, habitat

Natalia_photoToday Natalia Bjorklund, UNL Extension Educator and PhD candidate talks about Bee 101, the longevity of bees, bee stings, and bee habitats.

I learned a ton just from these questions!

In the days to come I will continue to add videos about various questions such as the importance of bees, concerns about bees, bees and GMOs, and more.

BEES…Everything you ever wanted to know (and more)

Natalia_photo The day you have been waiting for: BEES…Everything you ever wanted to know (and more) series with my colleague and friend, Natalia Bjorklund, UNL Extension Educator and PhD candidate. Natalia and I had a lot of fun getting together and filming these videos (as I am sure you will be able to tell).

Today I want to introduce Natalia to you and give you a feel for who she is. I love her passion and expertise for what she is doing and look forward to working with her again.

In the days to come I will continue to add videos about various questions such as BEE 101, bee habitat, importance of bees, concerns about bees, bees and GMOs, and more.

It is not too late to submit questions if you have any.

Bee-utiful Honey…Fun Fact Friday

Last night a neighbor brought over several 3-pound jars of honey from bee hives on their ranch – what a treat!

A hive of bees flies over 55,000 miles to bring you one pound of honey!

A honey bee can fly 15 miles per hour. Honey bee workers must visit 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey!
