LET ME

HELP YOU WITH YOUR BEES

Beekeepers can be 9 or 90, boys, girls, men or women. 

That being said, beekeeping does take time, commitment and understanding.

If you are interested in becoming a beekeeper I would like to help you!

I can:

  • suggest books to read, web sites to check out, associations to join.

  • help you choose the equipment you will need to start your own hives including my list of great tools and why you need them

  • help you choose the best site for your bees

  • suggest the type bees that are best for your area and where to get them

  • suggest ways to set up your bee yard with stands, plants, fences (electric or privacy)

  • teach you how to install your bees, how to understand and be calm around them, and how inspect your hives

  • teach your partner, spouse, or children about how to live with bees

  • guide you through seasonal tasks

  • help you understand swarming

  • help you through the always tasty, somewhat sticky job of harvesting your honey

  • and much more...
