Honey Bee Beekeeping Class at North Island College’s Courtenay Campus
Date:4/5/2013

Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada (PRWEB) April 05, 2013

A Beekeeping for Beginners class will be held on Saturday, April 13 from 1-3 p.m. at North Island College’s Courtenay campus, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

“Honey and beekeeping events are fun, educational and a great outdoor activity for families and people of all ages,” said Mary Ross of the Mohawk Valley Trading Company where they specialize in raw varietal honey.

Varietal honey is made primarily from the nectar of a particular type of blossom or flower. To capture the unique character and flavor of the blossom or flower, beekeepers must study botanical bloom and flowering patterns when planning hive placement.

Topics will include: the how-to on hive equipment, styles, and frame and hive building, in addition to bee biology, purchasing bees, pest control, honey extraction, and more.

Honey Bees

Bees are insects that are related to wasps and ants and there are approximately 20,000 known species of bees found on every continent except Antarctica. Honeybees (Apis mellifera) are not native to the United States as they were introduced by Europeans to produce honey and beeswax. Honeybees are responsible for pollinating 80% of flowering crops and without them the world’s food supply would be dramatically reduced.

As people become more conscious of the important role of honeybees play in their daily lives, bee keeping is becoming more main stream and is now allowed in many urban and suburban municipalities. Since 2006 beekeepers in the North America and Europe have noticed a mystifying occurrence called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) in which worker bees from a beehive or European honey bee colony abruptly disappear leaving the queen and insect larvae behind unable to fend for themselves. While such disappearances have occurred throughout the history of apiculture, the term colony collapse disorder was first a
