March Monthly Meeting
Sunday, March 13th @ 2:00 PM
Rocky Hill Grange
1340 South County Trail (Rte 2)
East Greenwich, RI
Speaker: Thomas D. Seeley, Ph.D.
Subject: Swarming and How to Bait Swarm Traps
This month's speaker will be Dr. Tom Seeley from Cornell University. Entertaining and always enlightening, Dr. Seeley will be speaking about swarming (which is the subject of his latest book, “Honeybee Democracy”) and about how to bait traps to recapture your own swarms.
Dr. Seeley, a professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at Cornell, is a regular and highly sought-after speaker on the subject of honeybee behavior. He's authored “The Wisdom of the Hive”, about how honeybee colonies make decisions, and most recently “Honeybee Democracy”, which describes how swarms choose a new location. Dr. Seeley and his research into swarming behavior was the subject of a long and engaging feature story last September in the New York Times.
