rotary_lovelands_8_24_12Loveland brothers - Jim, Roelif, & Pete.
            Urban Bee-keeping Rotary Program.   
Both Pete and Jim gave an interesting presentation to our rotary group this past Friday on their bee-keeping hobby. They gave a fascinating PowerPoint presentation explaining how they both maintain honeybee colonies (aka hives) and  how they also make honey. They informed us that a colony of bees consists of three castes of bees: the queen bee, the worker bees, and the drones. The queen bee is female and normally the only breeding female in the colony. The workers bees are also female and extremely over worked. And the drones are male and primarily used for mating. I will note an interesting fact - drones die immediately after mating. Along with all of the interesting facts that the Loveland brothers had to present, they also brought in some really neat beekeeping equipment along with honey for the entire room to sample. The presentation was extremely entertaining and the honey to sample afterwards was just icing on the cake. Two thumbs up for their presentation!
