To begin our experience we will go over bee yard etiquette and get dressed in protective bee yard attire. We will take a stroll to the honey bee sanctuary and see bees pollinating the tulsi basil flowers and others along the way. Once we get ready in the apiary we will learn how to light a smoker and begin a hive inspection demonstration. During this time we will identify honey, pollen, nectar, eggs, brood, queen bee, worker bees, drone bees, pests and much more. We will also closely examine bee biology and the ecology in the hive body. After our first hive demonstration we offer the opportunity for you to inspect the next hive. We will guide you through it and offer support as needed. Depending on the season we may even be fortunate to catch a swarm, harvest honey, or make a split if it is needed. Hive tutorials can be customized to focus on certain aspects of beekeeping such as split making, in-depth pest management, correcting cross comb, ect. if needed. We will conclude our hive time together by changing out the trays under the hives and walking the tools and buckets up to the processing kitchen. There we will sample honey, mead, and more!

I have offered beekeeping classes and workshops on the Big Island for nine years. I specialize in treatment-free hygienic beekeeping. My partner & co-host, John Lair and I offer honey bees, natural-cell queens, top bar hives, and pure hive products. I teach an 8 class course at the University of Hawaii~ Hilo which covers bee biology, hive ecology, hygienic hive management and much more. John and I co-teach two apiary days as part of this course. We love to teach together and share our passion for bees and their creations with others.
