About the Event

Many of us probably wished that we’d left mathematics behind when we finished school. In this talk Steve hopes to persuade you that some simple calculations can help you to understand your bees better, become a wiser beekeeper and, believe it or not, it can be fun too. Nothing like a challenge! He will delve into questions such as: How many eggs per day does a queen lay, how big can a colony get, what’s the relationship between colony size and honey harvest, what is the true cost of a jar of honey, or the cost of a lost swarm, how to get the timing right when raising queens, how to warm honey without raising HMF levels too much…and more.
