Sep 24, 2019

Bees are dying at alarming rates, but what can we do? Dr. Thomas Seeley has some ideas. In this episode he talks about his latest book The Lives of Bees: The Untold Story of the Honey Bee in the Wild and how studying wild bees could give beekeepers some insight on how to fight back against colony collapse. He spoke in Portland at the Alberta Rose Theatre while on his book tour in May 2019.

Other books by Thomas Seeley:

Following the Wild Bees: The Craft and Science of Bee Hunting

Honeybee Democracy
