Beekeeping Academy

Designed and presented by the Past President of the Missouri State Beekeepers Association, this course is for those serious in keeping honey bees. Mentor-led, hands-on sessions (weather permitting) are available to help beekeepers experience what is needed to properly care for their bees in a temporary, centrally-located outdoor apiary nursery.

Students will be instructed on how to introduce their newly purchased nuc into a Langstroth hive. Class will meet four to six more times during the Spring, Summer and Fall months. Hands-in-the-hive demonstrations will be performed to show how to inspect a hive, how to check and control pests, how to do a split, when to add supplemental feeding, how to introduce bees into a new hive, and how to properly move a hive. Students will be encouraged to perform maintenance duties during class time and a mentor will be available to answer any questions.

During October, students will move their hives to their own private locations. Exact dates of hands-on meetings are to be determined and are dependent upon the weather. Sessions will run through March 2019 (4 to 6 sessions, 2-3 hours each, 12 hours total instruction time). Hives, bees and safety equipment are not included in price.
