Beekeeping Mentoring Program

Hardin County Kentucky Beekeepers Association logoMarch 2018 Mentoring Session

During the Beekeeping Mentoring Program March session, beekeeper do’s and don’ts were discussed along with setting up and positioning new hives, conducting hive inspections, bee health treatment options, and spring feeding for newly established and existing hives. Many of the first time participants found the hands-on experience to be rather intriguing.
