Have you been thinking about raising bees in your backyard? Honeybees are an asset to the backyard gardener because they pollinate fruit trees, berries, vegetables and other garden plants. And of course, their honey is a delicious and valuable product you can harvest at home and share with your family and friends. Winter is the perfect time to prepare for starting hives in the spring. This lecture-style introductory course will cover the fundamentals of beekeeping, including equipment, parts of the hive, location and codes of the apiary, feeding and treating bees, and seasonal management.
