About this event


		What happens within the honey bee hive? A talk by Dr Paul Siefert image

Are you interested in the fascinating world of honeybees inside a bee hive?

A newly developed video technique from within beehives has allowed scientists to record the complete development of a honey bee and provides fascinating methods that bees have for organizing their colony.

This will be a wide ranging talk on all the details of what goes on in the bee hive, using stunning high resolution videos to show:

• The complete development of a honey bee in its hive.

• How honey bees build the honey comb, feed their larvae, heat and cool the cells, store nectar and pollen, cannibalise the brood, or clean each other.

• What influence pesticides such as neonicotinoids have on the breeding behaviour of honey bees in the hive, and in particular on the behaviour of the nurse bees and the brood.

• The impact of varroa and wax moths

About the speaker

Dr Paul Siefert works at the Bee Research Institute of the Polytechnical Society, Goethe University Frankfurt where he has created a novel video technique that has enabled him to record the complete development of a honey bee in its hive for the first time. This technique is a key part of his investigations into the effects of neonicotinoids on the breeding behaviour of honey bees in the hive in recent years.
