Boy Scouts Merit Badge Study


Come Explore the inside of a Honey Bee Hive. Participants will have the opportunity to suit up in veils and protective gear to enter into the world of the honey bees. We will show scouts, the various stages of development of the bee. Talk about its life span and the different rolls that the drones, workers and the queen bee, play in the hive. Honey bees are a superorganism consisting of many individual bees, sometimes as many as 80,000 bees. The term is often used to describe a social unit of eusocial animals such as honey bees, stingless bees and bumble bees, which have highly organized division of labor, and where individuals are not able to survive by themselves for any length of time.



Burgh Bees is working with Penn Township’s Boy Scout Troop #53 to educate them the importance of honey bees! By doing so the troop members will be closer to their goal of securing “insect study” merit badges. Please join us while we educate our future beekeepers!
