Basics of Beekeeping

Location: STB 226

In this course you will learn treatment‐free beekeeping practices based on bee biology and developing a relationship and understanding of bees, their castes, and the roles each caste contributes to the hive. Instructor Jen Rasmussen has designed this class series for anyone new to bees as well as for those who have bees and want to learn a new way to relate and care for them. Jen believes that it is not possible to care for bees properly if you do not understand how they function and create their hive. The management skills developed from this course are all focused on preventative methods. Students will learn how to foresee the cause of sickness and prevent it by providing hygienic hive care and encouraging bees to do what they do best.
