Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Bees

Bee Talk with Maddie Moate

Bees are amazing, complex, endlessly interesting creatures.  There’s always something new to learn about them, from why they swarm to how they get their jobs within the hive.  If you can’t tour a bee farm yourself, or if all that buzzing just makes you a bit nervous, never fear!

Say hello to Maddie Moate. She’s a British TV presenter with a YouTube channel devoted to explaining science and nature in kid-friendly – but never patronizing – terms.  She has videos on all sorts of topics, and best of all, Maddie has a whole series all about bees!

Would you like to see how honey is harvested?  Follow Maddie and her mother as they take frames from their hives to jars.

Have you ever wondered what the inside of a beehive looks like?  The Moate ladies open up a hive and walk us through all the pieces.

Maybe you’d like to know just how bees make honey?  Maddie is happy to explain, but it’s not for the faint of heart.

And what do bees do in the winter?  Maddie’s mum explains how the bees prepare for and spend the winter months.  Plus, there’s a bit of bonus information on hedgehogs at the end

From why bees are so good at math to how to lure and trap them, Maddie’s series on beekeeping answers just about every question you’ve ever wanted to ask about bees, all in easy language and engaging, fun videos.
