Honeybees are facing extinction. Pesticides, parasites and lack of nutrition are killing them off in hoards. Sure, bees sting, and it hurts, but this decline in the bee population isn’t good news. Humans need bees to pollinate the fruits and vegetables that keep us healthily fed. Matthaei Botanical Garden is offering a crash-course in beekeeping so that nature lovers can learn more about the species and about beekeeping strategies.
