This 4-class series will serve as an introduction to beekeeping. Each class will be 90 minutes. The first class will begin with an overview of the basics of beekeeping. As a new beekeeper, you can be overwhelmed by the wide variety of equipment and bee races available. This first class will cut through the hype and guide you to the essentials of what you need to get started. The basics at a higher level will be covered including the lifecycle of the three types of bees.
About the Presenter: Tony Andric
Tony has enjoyed the addiction of beekeeping for several years. He keeps about 40 hives in Central Texas, selling both honey and bees. All of his colonies come from feral colonies that he has removed over the years. He is refining genetic lines that have under 5% annual hive losses (“treatment free”), defying the loss rate of over 40% nationally. He has refined what equipment to use with grumpy colonies. He leads the San Marcos Area Bee Wranglers club. He also designed and sells the world’s leading bee vacuum, which fully funds his growing addiction. Many people start with the idea of having a new hobby or small business; not realizing that when done right, it does become an addiction.
