Ce que vous allez faire

Guests will be able to suit up in a Bee suit and become immersed in the amazing art of bee keeping. Learning basic skills and if they wish will be able to accompany me right into a hive and explore all the inner workings of the hive. See how bees are working in nature. Go frame by frame to spot the ruler of the hive (the queen). Watch bees actually take there first steps in life after chewing their way out of their cell and hatch out into the colony. See the difference between male(drone) bees and female(worker) bees. See the bees bring in the pollen on their pollen sacks. I will also go over how to select and graft new queens and how the process works to select genetics and how the very detailed timeline is carried out from initial breeder hive selection to grafting the appropriate age egg to using the starter / finisher colony to incubate the cells and also the incubator period for the cell. The final step of placing a cell into a mating colony and look at other colonies to see virgin queens and also mated queens starting there new colonies. I’m open to any and all questions the guest may and will have. I want to share this amazing creature to others they are a blessing.

I am a commercial honey bee keeper in Maine. I travel each year back and forth to Florida with my honey bees. During the winter they travel 1500+ miles to Florida and back in early May to Maine. While in Maine we provide much needed pollination services. I raise my own queens and have specific mating yards for them here in Maine. I typically run between 400-600 colonies and make 10’s of thousands of pounds of delicious natural raw honey that is sold all over Maine. We have large retail accounts and small garden stands selling the honey. I ship bees to hobby bee keepers nationwide.
