Bee in N Georgia on a Blackberry flower

« on: January 05, 2009, 11:31:46 PM »

I was just reading an article about the new Audubon Insectarium in New Orleans in the NY Times.  I visited their web page and their web page doesn't mention the honeybee.  The exhibits, etc don't seem to have bees as a focus either.  Anyone (JP) from New Orleans been there yet?  What about the honeybee?

Linda I have not been down to the zoo since Katrina. But, I did a few years before that go to the butterfly and I think insect house they were pretty good. Most things the Audubon zoo puts on are usually done pretty well. As far as the honeybees I do not know what if any part they are playing in the display. Maybe JP is supplying them Bees, you know he is a celebrity in those parts Wink

Canal Street? I thought it was on the zoo grounds. Is it part of the aquarium?

From the website, it looks like a really neat place. Wish it were closer.

"Audubon Insectarium showcases the largest group of animals on the planet, insects!  Since prehistoric times, insects have played invaluable roles: pollinating crops, decomposing waste and adding intrigue, color, texture and majesty to our world.

Your visit to the one-of-a-kind, interactive Audubon Insectarium will illuminate amazing things about these tiny (and not so tiny!) creatures; you’ll never think about them the same way again.

 Located in the historic U.S. Custom House on Canal Street in downtown New Orleans, Audubon Insectarium will delight you with ‘up close and personal’ live insect encounters, the indelible story of the Crescent City and insects, and “Life Underground,” where you’ll be shrunk to insect size. Discover global insect customs, sample exotic insect cuisine, learn about the history of termites and the latest technologies used in pest control management.  Take in a fun animated insect film at our immersion theater, traipse through the Louisiana swamp, enjoy the tranquility of our Japanese butterfly garden and watch hundreds of winged beauties as they flit about."

Sounds cool, but they mention termites and pest control - and not honeybees.....so I remain curious:  aren't insects wonderful and here's how we eradicate them through pest control....surely not.

Linda, most likely they are referring to formosan termites and using baiting systems to control them. I agree its strange that pest control is mentioned in the above paragraph in the same light as the insectarium.

Thanks, Annette, I am so relieved!  It would never have dawned on me to find honeybees in the cafe section, but I clicked on Tiny Termite Cafe and in the picture you can see a display that is shaped in honey cells - perhaps with an observation hive behind it although I can't see clearly what that is:
