Explore with Dr Jane Medwell how humans have manipulated the lifecycle of the honeybee for thousands of years, and examine how some innovations in beekeeping have allowed humans to work with the natural characteristics of bee behaviour. A small group of bee scientists and beekeepers are now looking at more “natural” ways of beekeeping. What have been the effects of the recent, massive expansion of beekeeping? For bees? For us?
