Educational Bee Videos

We credit these institutions and people for their great work in Honeybee Education

This is a six minute TED Talk video that speaks to the Varroa Mite problem we all deal with.

There is an amazing section of the video showing the first 21 day of a bee’s life condensed into 60 seconds. 

It starts with a bee’s egg which hatches in larvae which transform into pupae, and finally into the awesome bee.
