Our Rooftop Apiary, An Update
Friday May 25, 2012
The first generation of our Italian honeybees have hatched, and are now producing honey and pollen. After the female mates, she lays eggs which go through the same stages as caterpillars and butterflies. First they hatch into larvae, and then emerge from the cocoons as adults.
Our rooftop apiary serves as a real-life science lesson, plus we’re helping to pollinate local flowers and trees, and getting fresh honey out of it. Have you ever thought about urban beekeeping? There are some great resources out there to help you get started.
