So let me guess… It’s been a couple of weeks now since you’ve started beekeeping and you realized that you didn’t know as much about keeping bees as you thought you did? Well the good news is that Kim Flottum, Editor of Bee Culture Magazine, and Shane Gebauer, from Brushy Mountain Bee Supply in North Carolina will help you. On Tuesday June 1st, 2010 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm there will be a free webinar entitled 6 weeks as a beekeeper…Now What?
Join Kim and Shane as they discuss what’s going on in your hives, now that you’ve had them up and running for a few weeks. This information will be real sweet, pun intended, Lol. You will learn things about your queen that you may not have known. Is your queen doing what you expect for her to do and what is best for the colony? If not, then find out what you need to do now and next.
What pests to look out for and when you shouldn’t even worry about pests. In this webinar Kim and Shane will go over things such as what varroa mites are and how to deal with them. Also, when is the perfect time of the year to start beekeeping.
It’s always good to see pictures people doing what you want to do or are currently doing. These are a few inspiring beekeeping pictures, a little more encouraging than the man covered in bee’s in this picture. Here also is the link to sign up for the free beekeeping webinar.
