|Do you know Japanese Honeybee?|
By observing Japanese Honeybee,let's think about the natural environment around us.
I think we can learn something important from honeybees' life.
In this section,I will give you a precise lecture on what a honeybee is like,the difference between Japanese Honeybee and Western Honeybee,and how to keep honeybees and take honey.
What is a honeybee like?
Western Honeybee & Japanese Honeybee
The distribution and environment of Japanese Honeybees
Natural nest of Japanese Honey bees
Japanese Honeybees and hornets
How to keep honeybees
How to take honey from the hive
Honeybee reseachers in Japan
In this section I will give Introduction of character and life style of Japanese honeybee.
Location of Japanese honeybee's hives in nature
Hives in the open space
Life of Japanese honeybees in the city area (Hirakata, Osaka prefecture)
Example of nest of Japanese honeybees in extraordinarily high density
One year of nests of Japanese honeybee in nature
Escaping (Japanese honeybee is very nervous and often escapes from their nest)
How do honeybees control temperature of the nest?
Cymbidium pumilum (kinryouhen in Japanese) and Japanese Honeybee
Traditional breeding of Japanese honeybee
The new knowledge which was not known until now is shown. Furthermore, the data upon which the new knowledge was acquired is shown. This is what makes research enjoyable.
Structure of combs
Weight change of the honeybee nest in the natural state
Temperature control of the nest in open space
One-year observation of a nest in an open space (at a height of 13m)
The open space nest (the 2nd year)
Mechanism by which KINRYOUHEN (Cymbidium floribundum) Orchid attracts Japanese honeybees
The hybrids of KINRYOUHEN also attract Japanese honeybees
Cymbidium devonianum also attracts Japanese honeybees
Natural colonies of swarm gathering around C.devonianum and MISS MUFFET
Collecting Nasanove pheromone
The mechanism of swarms
The summer swarming
In 2002, the spring swarming season came unusually early
Observation and keeping of Japanese honeybees- new trials and the results
The color change of lips of KINRYOUHEN is a strategy for avoiding honeybees
Visiting the places remembered in connection with Karl von Frish
Graz (the second big city of Austria)
Munich (one of the big city of the Bayern district, southern Germany)
Please cooperate in research of Japanese honeybee
CAUTION! HONEYBEES DO STING YOU!
There's a chance that you may suffer from a severe shock syndrome by bee's natural poison.
