Forage – Lynne Ingram Master Beekeeper, NDB
Join us for a webinar on Feb 24, 2022 at 7:30 PM GMT.
Foraging is essential for honey bees and provides their food supplies of nectar and pollen. Forage sources for honey bees are an important consideration for beekeepers, especially when siting apiaries. This talk looks at the nutritional needs of bees, colony requirements and important sources of forage, as well as looking at the bees’ foraging strategies.
Lynne has kept bees for over 30 years, and runs 25 – 30 colonies in Somerset. She is a Master Beekeeper, has recently gained the National Diploma in Beekeeping, (NDB), and is an examiner for the modules and practical assessments. Lynne is heavily involved in educating beekeepers in Somerset, now running study groups via Zoom, and curating the popular Somerset Lockdown Lecture series.
