This classroom based course offers beginning beekeepers an introduction to honey bee biology and beekeeping basics. The course covers honey bee castes, races, pests & diseases, beekeeping equipment, and seasonal management necessary for a successful first year.
We are upgrading our textbook this year to Honey Bee Biology and Beekeeping and we provide a package of reference materials on critical topics. In addition to BK101 in the classroom, we are including the Installation Demonstration, BK101W Beekeeping Workshop, and a 2018 Burgh Bees Membership at no additional cost.
The Install Demo will show you how to install bees into a hive and the BK101 workshop will be a hands-on event showing you how to inspect a hive. The Installation Demo and BK101W will be held at the Burgh Bees Community Apiary and scheduled in the spring as conditions permits.
