Description

While knowing the plants that honey bees commonly use in your area is always a good idea, it is impossible to know every single plant out there. That’s why being able to make educated guesses about unfamiliar flowers can be helpful. In this class, I will share with you the botanical and beekeeping knowledge that I use to make educated guesses about how likely honey bees are to use flowers that I don’t know.

First, we will learn some of the key traits that tend to make flowers more attractive or less attractive to honey bees. Then we will dive deeper and learn some of the key characteristics for identifying several families of plants whose flowers tend to be highly attractive to honey bees. By applying this information, you will be able to make a reasonable guess as to whether honey bees will use a flower, even when you don’t know exactly what type of flower it is.
