Fun Meeting May 5th, 2017

 Dr. Frank Litton      TOPIC: OBSERVATION HIVES

Dr. Frank Linton is an EAS-certified Master Beekeeper. He is the author of The Observation Hive Handbook: Studying Honey Bees at Home, published in 2015. Frank has kept an observation hive in his home since 2005. He enjoys seeing, and noting, what the bees do––all day, every day, year-round. He has learned a lot from observing bees at home, and is still learning. Recently retired, Frank now maintains two websites: 

  • ColonyMonitoring.com, a website devoted to monitoring honey bee colony health and productivity remotely; that is, without opening the hive, and 
  • TheBeePeeker.com, a site devoted to observation hives. 

Frank’s book will be for sale after the meeting for $20, which is $5 off the Amazon.com price.
