Zoo Staff Class Part II

Robert teaches the group about how to find eggs and larva on a frame. Robert installed some experimental frames in the zoo hives-including a wire frame and plastic foundation frame-to compare first hand how the bees within the same hive react to the different equipment.

Everyone takes a turn learning to handle the frames, including Emmett, who cleared the path for hive number two, which we looked at later.

Susan, who tends the roof garden holds a frame of brood, after inspecting for eggs.

Polar bear, who lives below the green roof, looks up hoping for lunch.
