British tv presenter and science ‘edutuber’ Maddie Moate spends the day with her mother, a beekeeper, to collect a few honey-filled frames from their two hives. This How to Harvest Honey video is one in a series of vids dedicated to bees on Moate’s excellent YouTube channel.

We love bees. For more offline exploration, check out Bees: A Honeyed History, a beautifully illustrated book about the bee life cycle, bee anatomy, swarms, the Waggle Dance, beehives, pollination, flowers and our food, bees and dinosaurs, and more.
