Hello fellow melliphiles, you might have noticed that last week, the week of Thanksgiving, we didn’t have a puzzle for you, that is to bee expected as we are always trying to meet the demands of bees, family and business.
Have no fear though! We have a fun and tasty new puzzle for you all about honey. In tune with this week’s theme of honey here on the Bee Smart beekeeping project website AND the podcast featuring C. Marina Marchese co-author of “Honey Connoisseur” (with Kim Flottum).
Of course, you can print out this Crossword, as always using the link to the PF below and yes, it has a word list to help you folks who aren’t into the beekeeping lingo yet.
How cool is it when science and nature complement each other.
Love it when science happens. Honey bee genetics, biology, physiology. Especially when science shows us that natural adaptation happens.
Take a look at this journal article about the “Gentle” africanized bees that have been selected for in a specific and limited geographic area.
Here we again. We have a short list of some notable people involved over the years in honey bee research.
You can work the puzzle online here or you can print out the PDF below which also includes a wordlist for those unfamiliar with apicultural terms.
As always, you can get the answer sheet for the puzzle over at the Bee Smart Patreon page. We would love to have your support to keep our efforts moving forward.
The topic for the Bee Smart beekeeping project website this week is learning a bit more about the notable and notorious beekeepers that have moved the world of beekeeping over the years.
Some have given us great innovations in methods and equipment. Others have increased our understanding immensely. Still others have given us experience in what not to do rather than do what they actually did.
Let’s chat about some if the great minds and personalities that have helped modern apiculture become what it is today, shall we?
Do you love Honey? Have you thought of yourself as a honey connoisseur or would like to be? Terrific !

Hey there folks. We are still trying to maintain a certain focus on the things we post on here at the Bee Smart beekeeping project on a weekly basis.
This week, we’re going to pay a bit more attention to bees and pesticides. Both the Crossword and Wordsearch puzzles are based on this topic and Big Bear will be doing a video doing a mini “class” on the subject as well.
Hop on over to the website forums and share your ideas and experiences having to do with bees and pesticides in your little piece of the world. We’d love to see you there.
So, what is taxonomy? According to the dictionary;
- the branch of science concerned with classification, especially of organisms; systematics.
- the classification of something, especially organisms.“the taxonomy of these fossils”
Basically, taxonomy is the scientific way of organizing and classifying living things. In the case of our Interests, that would be bees, especially honey bees as far as this puzzle is concerned.
If you prefer working the puzzle on paper, you can print the puzzle out as a PDF with a word list to help you learn new terminology.
