Honey bees are fascinating to watch, and beekeeping is a great family activity. Plus, honeybees make gardens and fruit trees more productive, and the honey they produce is delicious! The course will cover everything you need in order to have thriving bees from the start, including equipment, honey bee biology, dealing with stings, year-round management, swarm control, diseases and honey extracting. Great for beginning and intermediate beekeepers, or anyone generally interested in honey bees. This course includes hands-on work in the apiary and is taught by renowned naturalist Steve McDaniel.
