The Honey Bee is an insect. Seems obvious but the Insect Kingdom is the most abundant group of animals on the planet with huge variations in their life-cycles, diets, preferred habitats and ways of moving. This talk will explore some of the adaptations that allow the honey bee to thrive by looking at the anatomy of the bee, from antennae to sting, and relating the form to function. We will look at the external features but also at some of the common dissections that can be performed to allow some understanding of the internal workings of the bee.

Bob has been keeping bees since the late 70’s, currently managing 10 colonies in 14×12 WBC’s in North Kent. He was a Seasonal Bee Inspector for 6 years, is a holder of the NDB and has served on several Government panels concerning bees and pollination. He has been involved in providing training opportunities for “Improver” beekeepers in Kent through both theoretical and practical handling courses.

Bob’s scientific training as an analytical chemist impacts his whole approach to beekeeping; experimentation and record-keeping are fundamental to chemistry and beekeeping!
