Cloverbuds learn the buzz on beekeeping

BONIFAY ­– Local 4-H Cloverbuds recently learned about more about bees and their importance as members of the ecosystem when the Central Panhandle Beekeepers Association visited the club’s March 29 meeting, hosted by Holmes County’s UF/IFAS Extension.

According to the UF/IFAS Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory, 90 percent of the world’s plants species rely on bees and other pollinators to reproduce, meaning pollinators are responsible for “every third spoonful we eat.”

In addition to teaching the Cloverbuds about the bees’ role in the world’s food supply, guest speakers Shannon Bost and Central Panhandle Beekeepers Association President Danny Bost educated students on bee anatomy and behaviors.

Cloverbuds saw worker bees in action and caught a glimpse of their queen, thanks to a see-through bee box exhibit that simulates the inside of a beehive. Shannon Bost also offered students a tasting of natural honeycomb before concluding the demonstration.
