Beekeeping throughout the year is a variable process.
Fitting annual apiary duties with the rest of your life can be tricky. NC State Apiary Inspector Nancy Ruppert has given us a helpful list of what can be expected throughout the year for beekeepers in the Piedmont. Those outside of central North Carolina will need to adjust for local conditions.
Richmond Beginning Beekeeping Class
Mar 28, 2020 –
One day workshop with field day, May 2nd.
Richmond County Extension Office
123 Caroline St
Rockingham, North Carolina 28379
This is a one day workshop that will include hive construction, the history of honeybees, pests, hive placement, obtaining bees, honey extracting, and other bee related topics. We will provide a light lunch and refreshments. Weather permitting, we will have a hive of bees that will be manipulated by one of our beekeepers. The hive will be inside a cage; so protective gear is not necessary.
