How Honey Bees Stay Cool

Honey bees, especially the young, are highly sensitive to temperature and to protect developing bees, adults work together to maintain temperatures within a narrow range.

      Ralph, please see the resource tab on the navigation menu. Select Local Beekeeper Assocations, go down about half way on the page to the map. Zoom in on the area where you live and click the red pinpoint that is closest to you. You will see the local club name, the president, contact info, meeting locations and times. Please feel free to attend the meetings! We have extended our “Free First Year Membership” in the Texas Beekeepers Association when you join a local association. See the club president at the meeting for details.

Got something to say?
