    Healthy Bees Project - Honey Bee Behaviour

    Tony Harris NBD & Ann Chilcott

    both Scottish Expert Beemasters 


    Explore honeybee behaviour in areas such as the population cycle, communication, foraging behaviour and organisation, workload, reproduction, and swarming. In each of these areas delegates will discuss what is understood of honeybee behaviour, and the factors that influence this behaviour, which will give delegates a greater understanding of the ‘colony mind’. Through understanding the natural behaviour of honeybees, delegates will be better prepared to predict and/or respond to their needs.

    SBA syllabus: Modules 1, 2, 6, 8

    Target Audience

    These 2 day courses are aimed at enthusiastic beekeepers at all levels who simply want to improve their beekeeping. They will also be of use to beekeepers taking any of the SBA modules or pracical assessments.They are delivered by Scottish Expert Beemasters on behalf of Moray Beekeepers Association. If you wish to be a better beekeeper and learn more about your bees and their care then these courses are for you.

    Students are welcome to apply on a first come, first served basis.

    Limited places available @ £65.27 for both days.
