About the Event

AM session will cover basics. We will take a break, put on suits and jackets, light smokers, and then go work bees together from noon-2pm! Naturally there will be time for some Q&A after and maybe even some equipment/supplies left that you'd like to buy! Please note, that I will not be going TOO deep in the historical aspects of beekeeping, or the super specific biological aspects of it. But we will cover basic terminology wich will be great for beginniers, followed by pest management, and some innovative/product demonstrations, and swarms and splits summary. We will take a well needed break while we "suite up" and work our way outside into my education apiary in order to learn how to light smokers, pop some lids and do inspections, mite counts, and more! A full suite is HIGHLY RECOMENDED so if you don't have one, you may have to step back away from the bees. If you don't have at least a jacket and veil, you will only be able to observe at a distance. Lastly, you can rent a suit for $50 or buy a suite or jacket. Just get with me ahead of time if at all possible! :-)
