Session 1 covers more than just the bee basics, which is a misnomer because there is nothing basic about the bees! 
Corwin paints a fascinating picture of how bee genetics informs survivor behavior traits, how these traits make up the bees' behavioral immune system and directly relate to survivability.  In Session1 Corwin launches into the big picture of the bees as a super organism, why we teach bee keeping the way we do and why we designed the type of hives we use.  We compare and contrast not only different hive styles generally used by the majority of bee keepers, but we also explore the various management practices which will clearly demonstrate how a natural Bee Guardian approach creates a sustainable habitat for the bees. Once we learn the bee basics, understand the individual types of bees in the colony, and can identify and discern the various combs and their uses in the nest, we will have the foundation to continue with Session 2.
