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.
