Below are pictures of our 2022 Beginning Class.
Many thanks to all our volunteer instructors for sharing their time and wealth of knowledge!
Our 3rd beginning beekeeping class offered hands-on training at a member's bee yard. The two pictures above show a swarm that had landed on a tree branch. One of the class instructors showed the class how to capture and box a swarm. How exciting to witness this!
Our beginning class was split into groups and was an assigned an instructor who showed them how to find the queen, larva, capped brood, burr comb and some other pretty interesting things in the hive.
