Along with other pollinators, these at-risk insects are fighting to survive in a world of lost habitat, invasive parasites, and deadly insecticides. Learn the basics of beekeeping, from the confusing jargon that describes equipment, to sources for buying equipment and your first bees. The makeup of the colony and its yearly life cycle, setting up a hive, disease management and control, and good resources for further study will all be explored. Also, sample several different types of honey to experience just how "sweet" honeybees can be!
