Honeybee Populations

Recently, I was working at a trade show in Secaucus NJ. Without exaggeration, I would say that one in every three people I spoke with asked me about honeybee populations. It is likely that you have heard that honeybee populations are declining and you probably have heard some of the many reasons behind the decline…

Honeybees and the Hexagon

How honeybees came to be mathematicians. The home of a honeybee is a palace of gold.  Wall to wall, honey gleams through the hive, casting with it the aroma of sweet earth, the nectar of two million flowers, and fresh warm beeswax.  Architecturally, a beehive’s perfect repeating hexagonal pattern is constructed more precisely than any…

Interestingly, the difference in price and quality can basically be distilled…

Orange Blossom Honey

I really, really, really hope I don’t discourage any of my fellow Floridians, but oranges did not originate in the Sunshine State. You folks in Texas and California can also quit your grinning because they didn’t get their start in your states either. In fact, tracing the origin of oranges will take us to the…

Hive Life – The Honeybee Society

To me, the magic of beekeeping is that you get to experience the inner workings of a completely different society, the honeybee society.  We get so caught up in the idea of alien societies that exist in far off space, or past societies in our human history, without giving much thought to the complex societies…

Pollination and the New Honey Season

It’s that time of year again when the weather warms and relationships formed by nature over millions of years snap into action.
