Det skal I lave
We'll be going into a hands on beekeeping fun and educational experience. After an introduction and safety lesson you will be taught how to be a bee keeper including topics such as tools and equipment, bee life cycles and roles, pests and diseases, Queen rearing. Flow hive Q & A. How to merge a hive, how to move a hive, how to catch a swarm, how to split a hive. Following the theory lesson we will get suited up into the protective clothing and head into the yard. We will first light the smokers (to make the bees docile) then I will demonstrate opening up a bee hive for an inspection. Then it is over to you, it's your turn to open up a bee hive, pull out the frames one by one and try to find the queen, check she is laying eggs properly, check there are no pests or parasites attacking the hive on the inside and check the bees are building the comb straight. Tastings of various honeys to follow. PROTECTIVE SUITS PROVIDED I only have adult sized bee suits therefore children under 12 cannot participate. Run time is approximate, allow for it to run a bit overtime. No cancellations under 1 week from starting date.

The workshop experience will be taking place in my large back yard. As the majority of the class takes place on grass in my yard. I am not sure if it would suit anyone in a wheelchair.

I'd be very surprised if someone got stung by a bee but there is a slight chance. For that reason I would not suggest this for those with a bee allergy.
