Bee Well Honey has been active in the beekeeping community for many years and helping beekeepers is a major goal. Many people express interest in becoming a beekeeper each year and start with new colonies. Proper management techniques are essential to becoming a successful beekeeper. Various resources include books, online articles, mentoring, classes and club meetings. One of the most useful resources is actual hands-on help from another beekeeper with more experience. This is why Bee Well Honey offers our beekeeping Boot Camp. The next session will be held on a Saturday in March 2015 (date to be determined). If you would like to receive more information when it is available send your

Many problems that colonies face can be adjusted and the hive saved if the beekeeper intervenes quickly. Whether gaging colony strength, checking for a good brood pattern or even looking for that elusive queen bee, having another pair of trained eyes can be a great asset. Beekeeping is an activity that contains a great number of variables : genetics of the bees, location, food sources, pests, weather, foraging area. All of these conditions can vary greatly from one location to another. If you want to be really successful with your colonies, form a good group of beekeeping friends that you can call for advice. Expect to get a lot of answers. You will still have to decide for yourself which management options to use but you will learn a lot. Beekeepers helping beekeepers – this is the way to go !
