O que você fará

Your 1.5+ hour interactive experience with a bee colony begins with an overview of the life of a bee and the different jobs a bee has as they mature. Learn the parts of the hive.
You’ll see an empty hive and learn how to hold a frame (without squishing the bees -they don’t like that).

We’ll observe a hive (from a distance), and get suited up. Light a smoker. Do a safety check, and approach the hive.

At the hive you’ll see and feel the power of propolis (a supplement for people as well as) -- its the glue bees use to seal up the hive.

We’ll lift the lid and go inside.
For some, that’s might be as far as they want to go. But, if you want to see more, we will do a complete hive inspection: Pull frames to see how the bees create honey and keep the colony alive.

You’ll see open “wet cells” of nectar that are still in the process of transforming into honey. You’ll see capped honey, tiny freshly laid eggs and all the stages of bee development ( larvae, caped brood, and newly emerging “baby bees”).

I’ll show you how beekeepers help control pests (other insects and diseases) and keep the bees healthy so they can do their important work.

You’ll hold frames of bees and feel the weight of a full frame of honey when compared to a frame of bees.

There’s always time for selfies.
Note: Summers are HOT. Make sure you're ok w/ heat!

You’ll sample honey & enjoy a cold beverage

Bee a Keeper.

I love bees.
I love to try to help them love me back.
As a backyard beekeeper it’s always exciting to interact with each colony and observe behavioral differences. Every day I learn from these amazing creatures.

I'm also a full time educator (and a registered beekeeper with the State of Florida Agriculture Department).

Onde você estará

Backyard beekeeping is becoming a big thing. Bees in urban settings are exposed to less pesticides and a wide variety of food sources. Working next to the chickens, we will be in the backyard apiary.

Experience times are flexible. Dates are also flexible. Each experience is limited to 6 guests. Everyone gets up close.

If you have a larger party - we can discuss some workable options.

-->Please note: it can get VERY HOT May-October

This was a fantastic experience! David has a passion for bees, and it shows in this event he offers. We started out learning about bees, some info I already knew and some info that surprised me. He was knowledgeable and easy to learn from. We then suited up and approached the bees. He has a well thought out safety process and addresses anxiety as needed. His bees are docile and friendly: we had a blast seeing the hive at work from larva to hive building, we showed us varying stages of the life cycle. He then made us drinks while sampling different kinds of honey. It was delicious! Totally recommend this to anyone.
