We will start off talking about some of the history of Honey Bees, the different types of bees (queens, workers, drones) that we will see in the hive, the bee life-cycle, inner beehive activities, beehive equipment and more. We will then put on bee suits and visit a working beehive to see the bees in real life. Inside the hive we will find the queen and look for eggs, larva and pupa. We might even see a queen laying an egg. When finished at the hive, we will return to the house and answer any other questions about bees. Note: - Honey Bees are very sensitive to cold temperatures. In the unlikely event that outside temperatures drop to less than +5 deg C, the experience will be cancelled with full refunds.
I have been a Honey Bee Beekeeper in the Calgary area for over 11 years. I host beekeeper learning sessions for members of our local Beekeeper's Club and mentor new beekeepers. Honeybees are one of the major pollinators of the world and help pollinate 1/3 of the food we eat. I am very passionate about maintaining/increasing the health and population of our honey bees. I enjoy sharing my beekeeping experience and hope to provide people with an exciting and memorable experience as well as a better understanding about bees - maybe the knowledge will encourage you to become a beekeeper.
I will provide full length bee suits which will cover you from your head to your ankles
This experience will be hosted at our home. The bee yard with 10 or more hives is located in a field 100 meters away and depending on the time of year will have from 200,000 - 800,000 honey bees.
最多6人參加，年齡須滿10歲。 Guests should be comfortable with a large number of bees flying in the air. Due to the inherent risks associated with this activity, all guests (or legal Guardian) will be required to sign a liability waiver before visiting the bee…
Guests should be aware that there will be a high number of bees flying about once the hive is opened. This can be very intimidating to some people. Special Experience dates and times can be arranged, please send me a message with your preferred date/time.
