Visiting a bee yard

My beekeeping education was completed online. If I could get my Bachelors and Masters online, what would be the issue doing the same with the bees?

For me, I know that knowledge can be learned online and through books, but until practical application of the knowledge is preformed, it is all just in my head.

I was thankful to meet up with a commercial beekeeper who just started his operation in Florida. He had over 40 hives that were all getting started.

What did I learn?

  • Buying sugar in bulk results in weird looks
  • Shade is needed to find rest
  • Local water source is a requirement
  • Identification of hives and system of checks
  • Plant flowers
