Master Beekeeper and Teacher, Lauren Ward, will be ready to answer your beekeeping questions at the BeeGoods Mercantile, and follow up with a group hive inspection. If you need help with your hive or how to start beekeeping, then Lauren's years of experience is what you need. She managed A&M's campus apiary, built and managed the online beekeeping course at A&M, and we are blessed to have her as a part of the BeeWeaver team. Her humor and knowledge will be the perfect combination for having fun learning about bees. Our store is air conditioned, our porch is shaded with fans, and our bee observation deck is open air with shade. It is summer in Texas but we will make you as comfy as we can!
Join us on Thursday morning to watch one of BeeWeaver's queen catchers at work. Our mini queen yard (aptly named 'Ana Rosa's Queen Garden') is next to our BeeGoods Mercantile. You will be able to see how we arrange our queen nucs, look for and catch queens, clip/mark queens, and cage them. Afterwards each nuc will receive a new queen cell and a shot of feed. Please note this is a live hive event. While queen nucs are small, gentle colonies there is still a chance of stings. Please bring your own veil or plan on buying one at our store that morning if you feel you must protect against this risk. This event is weather dependent. In the chance of rain it will be postponed or cancelled.
