Class: Beekeeping Basics
Are you interested in keeping bees Spring 2015? Now's the time to start your adventure. This very popular class is an excellent  introduction to beekeeping. This 4-hour class will cover these essential topics:

  • Equipment (Including a brief summary of alternative designs, such as Warre and Kenya Top Bar, but focusing upon Langstroth)

  • Basic Bee Biology

  • The Beekeeper's Calendar (starting with installing your bees in spring)

  • Hive Manipulation Techniques

This lecture class is to be presented at the Ruhl Bee Supply store. No protective gear is required. Bring a snack, as we'll have a 15-minute break, and plan to stick around for an extended Q&A session.

​No Basic Beekeeping Classes scheduled right now.  We will start classes up again in September 2015.
