I’ll bee ready to work on rehabbing hive boxes and putting together new boxes tomorrow at 1 pm.
We have donated hive boxes that need to be cleaned up and made usable for the new bee colonies we will go out and rescue this year.
Interns, here’s a great opportunity to come down, ask questions, find out the answers to What, How, Why, When, and even When. Learn to identify pieces of hive equipment and much more. $7.50 for the day.
Apprentices, take in a session of getting hands-on experience while you have someone there who won’t let you break anything (or can fix it if you do). No stress, all fun and improving your skills. $15.00 for the day.
After we’re done, you can get a special deal on going through the rest of the farm to see what Joy and the gang’s and visit the special critters living there.
Learn about bee hives, beekeeping equipment and support Bee rescue all at the same time.
I’ve taken the Bee Smart beekeeping project into an active project role by basing our activities and education at the new teaching apiary at Scatter Joy Acres in the Florence neighborhood of Omaha.
Scatter Joy Acres is already all about animal rescue with dozens of farm animals and even a camel being brought home there. Why not join forces and make it a home for rescued bees as well?
And so we have. When you contact me at the Bee Smart beekeeping project here to come and capture swarms that have landed on your property or to do a live removal of bee nests from inside a building or the ground, we’re talking about honey bees and bumblebees here, myself and the Beehooligans will come out and get them at as low a cost as possible to you. Perhaps at no cost to you at all.
Instead of unnecessarily killing bees that have moved into the wrong place, those bees can be rescued and used to teach people about bees and beekeeping at the teaching apiary.
If you know of bees that need to be rescued this coming year, please call me at 402-370-8018 to schedule a live bee rescue and relocation to the new teaching apiary at Scatter Joy Acres.
