The honey bee is in trouble. A steep increase in honey bee colony losses has been reported around the globe in recent years. Bees have been of high value and fascination to humans for millennia—venerated, yet feared. The way a hive of bees lives and works tirelessly in the service of its queen and to produce the marvelous golden honey, is a living mystery. This lecture is a basic overview of a year in beekeeping. We will learn the equipment and the never-ending work of a beekeeper, honey bee biology, their role in our food supply, and the biggest threats to honey bees.
