Beekeeping Workshop Series in Monroe County

The Monroe County Extension Service is hosting a series of three beekeeping workshops this spring at their Aberdeen office. Click here to learn more.

(The course description below is from Randall Nevins)

1st Meeting Topic: Spring Bee Preparation and Buildup

This workshop is specifically for local private beekeepers that want to learn how to promote and manage bees on their property! We will cover early spring inspections, rules for modern beekeeping, splits, summertime chores, tactics and ideas for success. We will also have demonstrations on beekeeper equipment needed, bee hive box parts and establishment, pest management and much more. Some parts of these sessions will be a “hands-on” learning experience through a series of lessons. Please wear appropriate clothes.

 The first workshop will meet at the Monroe County Extension Office on Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 6:30 PM.  Registration is required for attendance, but there is no fee. Refreshments and reference materials will be provided. So please call (662-369-4951) to register by April 5, 2016

Mark your calendars: Beekeeping Spring Series Dates (all sessions will be at the local Extension office, except where noted):

If you want to have more hives of bees, you will find this workshop series very helpful.  See you there!
