Joining a local beekeeping club provides lots of support, information and education….all making you a better beekeeper. The West Sound Beekeepers Association each year on bee arrival day puts on demonstrations throughout the day. This makes it easier for newer beekeepers to understand the process of moving their new packages of bees into their new home.
A 3 pound package of bees contains about 10,000 bees and one queen.
David Mackovjak does a great job not only installing this package of bees but also fielding questions from the onlookers.
