    Art & Science of Beekeeping Course

    Bindaree Bee Supplies and Wins Creek Meadery are offering a unique beekeeping course. Bindaree will provide instruction on the Art & Science of Beekeeping and Wins Creek Meadery will be catering on both days. What better way to spend a weekend away, enjoying and learning about these fascinating creatures.

    Whether you have a flow hive, Langstroth, top bar or Warre hive, the principles of beekeeping are the same. Art & Science is a two-day course covering what we know about bees and how to look after them. The Science of beekeeping will cover bee genetics, biology and disease control. The Art of beekeeping involves actual hands on experience working with these animals and constructing the frames and hives for them to live in.

    Four course dates are offered with a limit of 10 people per course. Course attendees get priority bookings for honey bee colonies to start their new adventure. For the November and December courses, you could bring your hive and bees home with you after finishing the course.

    Beeco Smoker

    Bees and Smoke From: T & M Weatherhead Date: Sunday, 9 February 2003 5:15 PM Whilst working my cell builders this morning, I got to thinking about smoke and bees. Bee-L has had a lot of discussion on what fuel to use in the smoker but why does it work? I have heard the old story we tell young children of how smoke makes the bees think it is a bush fire and they gore honey, are full and cannot move properly and hence are quiet. Most logical is that smoke disrupts the pheromone communication within the hive by the bees. But then we use all sorts of fuel in our smokers so it would seem that it does not matter what the source of the smoke is but that it is smoke. So can we use something that will stir the bees up enough so as to overcome the disruptive nature of the pheromone communication? Trevor Weatherhead AUSTRALIA From: Peter Borst Date: Monday, 10 February 2003 1:15 AM Greetings Having worked with bees for almost 30 years, I have reached the following conslusion: Smoke intoxicates the honey bee. The symptoms appear very similar to alcohol intoxication in humans. Sure, it affects communication, but I think this is a secondary effect due to their fuzzied responses. I think the primary effect is that it dulls their awareness, which accounts for the lack of defensive response -- and lowers their inhibitions, which causes them to gorge on honey. Normally the bees protect the hive and its honey stores with great vigilance, except when it's very warm and they are on a serious honey flow. Then, they seem to be too concerned about their work too worry about anything else. But what about drumming? I wonder how THAT works? (for anyone who does not know it, if you drum rhythmically on a hive they will eventually pour out of it)
