LOCAL BEE KEEPER VISITS SCHOOL!

We were really lucky have a Eoghan Macgiolla Choda, a local bee keeper visit our school with 1000 bees!!!! We learned lots: for example –   the honey bee is black and is very common in Ireland; it takes the pollen of 2,000,000 dandelions to make one jar of honey;  there is only one queen bee in any colony; the queen bee is 50% larger than the other bees and lays about 1,000 eggs a day; the queen lives for 5-6 years; the other bees (drones) live for about 6 weeks. Eoin the bee keeper has 150 hives with 40,000 bees in each one. Here are some photos of the visit.
