A year in the life of a honey bee colony
Honey bees live in perennial colonies. One result of this is that they have to survive yearly fluctuations in temperature, rainfall, forage availability, stressors, etc. Survival and reproduction are the ultimate goals of any organism and honey bee colonies are no different. In this lecture, Dr. Ellis will discuss the yearly lifecycle of a honey bee colony and what it does to survive given the ever-changing conditions it faces.
