This September 7th at 10 a.m., we’ll be giving a presentation on beginning beekeeping at the Edgerton Public Library. This free and public talk will go over some of the basics folks should know before taking the plunge and starting a backyard apiary. We’ll cover the bee life cycles, seasonal activities, equipment, how to get started, and common problems.
We’ll briefly touch on the research and resources here at the institute as well. We hope to announce an expansion of our breeding program for next year. Part of that expansion includes creating literature, resources, and guides for beekeepers to keep bees without mite treatment.
We hope to see anyone interested in beekeeping there!
