It’s official, I will be traveling to West Jefferson EARLY Saturday morning on the 23rd to retrieve 10 Nuclear Bee Hives (10,000 bees and 1 Queen per Nuclear Hive) for insertion into our new hives. We will gather at 2:00 PM at the Smith Apiary for a demonstration of how to insert your bees into their new home, and then you will work together in pairs to insert your bees into their new hives. I delayed picking the bees on April 16 as this is a big dedication and planting day at our Community Garden. This gives you one extra week to get those hives in shape, view the materials I have already posted, and read assignments in your Backyard BeeKeeper’s book and this blog.
Assignments for this week – To be completed by April 6:
- Please read Everything prior to Chapter one in your Backyard Beekeerper’s Book
- Part C on our Blog – Understanding and setting up your beehive on site
- Post any questions and/or comments on THIS post in the comments section found at the bottom of this post.
- Do not hesitate to contact me through text or phone (704-827-7989), Comments in this blog, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of you are interested in purchasing full bee suits. I will be getting a price on this and posting later this week. It is not a requirement, but it is a nice thing to have and is more convenient.
