Jim Deterra is our guest speaker. Jim is a club member, a bit of a comedian, and above all a passionate beekeeper, so much so that he has enrolled in Cornell University’s Master Beekeeper Program. Tuesday evening he will give us his insights into his decision to enter the program, what is expected of him, and what he thinks he’ll get out of dedicating so much time to the study of the honeybee. Jim will also enlighten us on some interesting bee facts he has been researching such as: human vision vs bee vision, bees and water, bees and hexagons, the mystery of the “bee whisperer” and is honeybee 1 word or 2? Jim will undoubtedly entertain us as he does with his presentations at bee school.
Up for raffle this month: A brand new 2 frame honey extractor, be ready for the flow.
