Dr. Deb Delaney  from the University of Delaware will present:  Take Time to Smell the Roses.  Dr. Delaney shares……..

“In this talk, I have synthesized a large body of literature published on honey bee nutrition over the past half a century. I talk about the nutritional requirements of honey bees and what are the best sources of these requirements based on scientific literature. I will also explore the mutualisms that occur between bees and flowers by investigating bee behavior towards flower phenology., and finally, I will address the ecological value of native flowers for bees in terms of nutrition and how to track nutrition coming into the apiary. “
