I got asked to do an hour long presentation on (Backyard) Beekeeping at the public library as part of the adult summer reading program but people of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. What topics would you cover? Here's my basic outline: Honeybee Biology -bee anatomy (basic head, thorax, abdomen, sting, antenna, proboscis) -Lifecycle -adult bees and their roles Types of hives - advantages and disadvantages -Langstroth -Top Bar Hive -Warre hive Selecting a site -forage range -proximity to property lines -flight path barrier -water availability Getting bees -packages -nucs -swarms -colony relocation Hive products -Honey -beeswax -propolis -pollen Typical beekeeping year -spring build-up -nectar flow -dearth -preparing for overwinter Pests and Diseases -Varroa mite -Nosema -skunks -Small Hive beetle -American Foulbrood Questions and slideshow or our beekeeping year so far Honey tasting Seems like a lot to cover and I don't plan on going very in-depth in any one subject, I only have an hour or so. I have lots of pictures and a powerpoint presentation to help keep me on track. I'm planning on bringing a super with frames and a frame of capped honey. I would bring all the main parts to a hive but all my bottom boards are used up, no empty hive bodies or unused innner covers and telescoping tops, in fact, I've been using 3/4" plywood to make migratory tops. My 8 year old son is coming with me with his bee jacket and gloves and we'll bring a hive tool and frame grabber and an empty bee package box and nuc box. Does this sound manageable in an hour? What parts would you cut out or add?
