Healthy, happy, easy-to-maintain honey bees not only reward their keepers with delicious honey but also provide a wonderful pollination service to neighborhood gardens. Learn how to select, house, and manage these beneficial insects as we look at hive components, costs, assembly, and location. We'll also learn how to use a smoker; what to wear when working with bees; when to purchase bees and from whom; how to install bees into the hive; and how to keep your bees healthy. Along the way, we'll discuss bee anatomy and social structure, and you'll receive a month-by-month schedule of bee-keeping activities. There is a field trip to the instructor's apiary that will include a discussion and demonstrations.
