4-H Beekeeping Project

This project will help youth about bees and beekeeping. Youth will learn about the types of bees, the honey and wax they produce, the plants that attract bees, and the equipment a beekeeper needs. If you want to set up your own hive, you'll learn basic beehive care, how to extract and bottle honey. Advanced topics include: increase the number of your honey bee colonies, increasing honey production, producing special kinds of honey, and learning more about bee societies.

Check the 4-H Handbook for complete exhibit details.
