Breeding Queen Bees. Melanie Margarita Kirby

Which bee will be the chosen one, the queen bee, mother of the hive? How do bees choose their queen bee? What is royal jelly? Isn't a queen bee any other ordinary bee that produces young? What really happens to honey bees and the plants when only one blooming plant is available? Bee researcher and beekeeper Melanie Margarita Kirby shares her connection with honey bees. Stewards of flowers, trees, and other plants, honey bees have been general pollinators before humans ever walked the earth. Melanie‚Äôs mission is to help sustain the continuity of pollination through queen bee breeding. For her, an indigenous person, she wants to reconnect with where our food comes from and the energy that goes into producing it, including the seed itself.
