Join K-State Research and Extension for an informative all-day Beekeeping Basics workshop from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, at the Sunset Zoo. This beekeeping workshop will provide an introduction to beekeeping, as well as provide education on the parasites, pathogens, and other maladies associated with honey bees, including the effects of pesticides on honey bees. Participants will learn the importance of honey bees and see how to build their own beehive.

Whether you're new to beekeeping or have some experience, you're sure to learn something new. Discussions will be led by Raymond Cloyd, K-State Extension entomologist, as well as other beekeepers in the Manhattan area. This event is limited to 30 participants and filling quickly.
