Beekeeping 101

Next Class: Friday, February 24, 2017, 7:00-9:00 p.m. State Farm Show Building - Monongahela Room (2nd floor). Please sign-up with the brochure below.

Honeybees have caught a lot of attention in recent days with news headlines of “Colony Collapse Disease (CCD),” “Killer Bees,” “Varroa Mites,” and “Pesticide Usage”. In doing so, they have rekindled an interest in a long-forgotten traditional pastime known as “Beekeeping.”

If you are one of the many folks that want to help the bees and you are considering becoming a beekeeper… then this meeting is for YOU, the beginner!

We hope to share with you the information you will need to get started as a beekeeper. You will receive handouts that will help guide you in the purchase of equipment as well as about the bees themselves!

There will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you might have in regards to keeping bees.
