I did a talk on the different types of smells that the Honey bee can produce and the effect some of the smells have on other bees.
The smells are called pheromones, and this is a communication signal to other bees, the other type of communication is by touch.

There are 25 slides to my talk so I'll download over the next couple of days 6 at a time with the last being 7.













More to follow

I wish I knew 1/10th of what you do. Do you have a book out yet? If not, why not.

By the way, I have changed my forum name to Iddee. It is the one I have always used on other forums, so I decided to carry it over to here.

PS. Thank You again for all these posts. They are magnificent.

Hi Iddee,
Thank you for those kind words.
I am studying for the National Diploma in Beekeeping which I hope to take in 2012.
Unfortuneatly I am a lone beekeeper as the nearest other beek is about 17 miles away and my out apiary is only 3 miles away, although I am an active member of our association the bulk of beekeepers are in Cambridge itself which is 32 miles away.
Once a month the association hold an open meeting at the association apiary, where its only a select few that open a hive where the main onlookers are beginners. Once a member has 2-3 years under their belts then little is done for them in the way of carrying on learning as there is so much to understand about these little bees. The lethargy within the association is to my thinking abnormal. I think its the norm throughout a lot of associations.

Not long for our beekeeping to get under way as we have had some decent weather recently and the bees have been out on cleansing flights. I can't wait.

Regards;
