Back by popular demand (or perhaps, more likely, due to our insatiable fascination with the complex nature of honeybees), the Andresen Nature Center will be hosting a follow-up discussion on these industrious little insects in late February. This session’s primary focus will be tailored towards newer beekeepers and those interested in starting their own apiaries.
This month’s topics will cover such things as basic equipment set-up, tips on getting a colony safely bedded into their new home, preparing for “The Spring Flow,” hive inspections, and monitoring for pests. However, bring your questions on any bee-related issues you may be encountering, as we will gladly cover any specific problems or concerns you may have.
