Beekeeping: Getting Started

ID : 8889   
« back to classes page
The honeybee population nationwide has been devastated by infestations of “mites” and numerous diseases; however, with proper care, honeybees can be successfully maintained.  In this informative class you will learn about honeybee colony characteristics, required equipment, management techniques and practices, and honeybee disease and parasitic mites. Learning all you can in the fall allows time over the winter to gather your materials so you’ll be ready to start your hive first thing in the spring! 
Time will be provided for bee yard hands-on experiences in addition to scheduled classes.
