A complete beehive will be brought in to utilize as a demonstration tool and to allow the prospective beekeeper to visualize the equipment involved. Explore methods for inserting the bees in their new home and how to introduce their queen. The use of beekeeping tools for hive inspections will be demonstrated. You will learn about honeybee behavior, the role of the queen and proper brood patterns. Discover where propolis, flower pollen and royal jelly come from and the medicinal benefits we can reap from the honeybee bi-products.
