Hands On: Inspecting the Hive


At Walt’s Apiary

On June 11, 2022, we had a field trip out to long standing beekeeper, Walt’s apiary where we had hands-on guidance in opening, inspecting, and understanding what you see in a hive. We ended with a demonstration of the sugar roll, and we discussed the critical role of detailed record-keeping that can come in handy years later.

Thank you for hosting us, Walt!
