Introduction To Beekeeping

Delaware Valley University, Doylestown, PA,                                                                    July 17, 18, 31, August 1, 2021, 9AM-4PM. By popular demand, this course has been lengthened from one intensive weekend to two, thus allowing more time for work in the apiary and for discussion, while maintaining coverage of essential topics.  This  extended two-weekend course is designed for hobbyists, beginning beekeepers or for experienced beekeepers wanting a refresher course or more up to date information than they have. In this course you will learn about:
•    Honey bee biology and behavior
