    Reminder Thomas Seeley to speak at BYBA in CT

    Thomas Seeley will be the speaker at the Backyard Beekeepers Assoc. meeting Jan 27th at the Norfield Congregational Church in Weston CT at 7:30PM.

    The topic will be how honey bees decide on nest locations.

    A new beekeepers class begins at 6:30PM.

    From the club newsletter concerning T. Seeley:
    Currently, he is working on a new book, Swarm Intelligence in Bees which is what his talk will center upon; Real
    Democracy: Decision-making by a honeybee swarm as it chooses its home. His book, The Wisdom of
    the Hive, will be a raffle item at the meeting.

    No Fee!

    Just show up. They will be happy to have a few more seats filled.

    I know about the club's website! I missed hearing a presentation by Ernesto Guzman a few months back because of the site.

    This is an awsome oppertunity for beeks in the New England area. I sure wouldn't miss it if I were in that area.

    Thanks for sharing the info.
    Always question Conventional Wisdom.

    I heard Mr Seeley speak at the annual M.S.B.A.meeting last April.After hearing him I have a much better understanding of what swarms look for in a new home.Im tempted to take the drive south just to hear him again.Go see him speak you will not be sorry!
