Agriculture - UMaine Extension Cumberland County Beekeeping Schools for 2014

Beginning Beekeeping Schools:

This is a great opportunity for new beekeepers, prior to their first year of bees, or it can be a great refresher course for beekeepers just now going into their first winter, and even those with a couple of years of experience who want to refresh their skills and knowledge.

The Beginner Bee course consists of 5 sessions and will be taught by two Master Beekeepers. The fee covers the cost of the textbook and the beekeeper’s reference notebook.

Call or email us to be placed on the 2014 Fall interest list.

Honeybee Disease & Pest Management Workshop:

A comprehensive, two night class concentrating exclusively on honeybee diseases, pests, and their management. The focus of the workshop is on practical identification techniques and how to work with the bees to solve these issues and apply IPM management strategies.

Call or email us to be placed on the 2014 Fall interest list.

Intermediate Beekeeping School – Apiary Management

Apiary Management is geared towards beekeepers with two plus years of experience.  The focus of this class is how to effectively manage an apiary under Maine conditions.
