Notes from Josh:
I have been a beekeeper since the spring of 2017.
I began with 2 packages and several weeks later started my observation hive with a supersedure cell from one of them.
I have had bees in it ever since and have learned a tremendous amount because of it.
My goal is to encourage everyone to use an observation hive as part of their beekeeping journey.
A few things we’ll cover are: what is an observation hive, are they hard to care for, what can I learn, and other ideas.
Please join us on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 6:30 pm at the Montgomery County Health and Human Services Building at 210 Pepper St., Christiansburg
