Join us on Sunday, November 15 for our November meeting. We will have Cornell researcher Michael Smith as our guest speaker, talking about the oft-maligned drones. This looks to be an entertaining (and informative) session!
I will be talking about drone comb, and how colonies “know” that it’s time to build drone comb. You might think the answer to this question is always, because those bees seem to fill every available space with pesky drone comb! We’ll talk about drone comb, when and why they build it, how they use it, and some cool new results from his research. This is not going to be a dry academic talk. There will be at least one water pun.
As usual, 2-4pm at the Cooperative Extension Center at 615 Willow Ave. in Ithaca. See you there!
