Awareness of Bees as Pollinators

Local Beekeeper Tom O'Sullivan brought a special transparent demonstration hive of bees to promote awareness of bees as pollinators in September.


Young beekeeper and 1st year Pres Student Olivia Dillon helped students to identify the Queen, the worker bees, the larvae and how the pollen and honey are stored in the honeycomb.


Tom explained that, in the beehive,  the female teenagers (the young nurse bees) are fully in charge of running the colony.... just one more reason to admire honeybees!
