No flowers for 9 months! How’s a bee going to eat and keep warm? Fairbanks beekeepers use unique tricks to keep bee hives healthy. In this course we’ll learn how to deal with cold-weather problems and take advantage of the short but productive summer. You will learn what equipment to gather, where to get bees, how to start the hive in early spring, summer hive maintenance, and the joy of the honey harvest. When bees arrive in mid-April, you’ll be ready to be a beekeeper.
