Why do bees have wings?
Understanding bee wings was key to figuring out how bees could fly. Their wings are not rigid, but twist and rotate during flight. Bee wings make short, quick sweeping motions front and back, front and back. This motion creates enough lift to make it possible for bees to fly.
Do bees communicate with their antennae?
Because the inside of a beehive is completely dark, and eyes don’t work without light. Thus bees rely on the sensitive hairs on their antennae to communicate. Bees dance to relay information, so touching another bee with an antenna helps them understand it.
Why do beekeepers wear white?
This usually comes in the form of animals who wish to eat their sweet honey and to do so they attack a bee’s hive. Therefore by wearing white, a beekeeper can approach and open the hive without the bees becoming defensive and attacking, decreasing the chances of the beekeeper being attacked/stung.
Is beekeeping an expensive hobby?
Getting started with beekeeping can be an expensive hobby often costing around $300 for the hive and around another $100 for bees during the first year (depending if you purchase a nuc or a package). Most folks recommend starting out with two hives for a variety of important reasons.
