TEXARKANA, Ark. –
Keeping honeybees has become increasingly popular, especially after hearing the alarming
reports about large-scale declines of honeybees and other pollinators. But whatever
the motivation to take up beekeeping, most find it a fascinating and rewarding endeavor.
The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture offers complete beekeeping
short courses periodically around the state. These courses are open to anyone interested
in honey bees or beekeeping. No prior experience with bees is necessary to participate.
Classes will cover everything a person needs to know to begin keeping bees safely
and successfully. Most short courses consist of three class sessions, with new information
presented in each class, building on what has already been covered. All short courses
are taught by University of Arkansas extension Apiculture Specialist Jon Zawislak,
an EAS-certified Master Beekeeper.
Because the beekeeping industry is always changing to adapt to new challenges, these
classes can also be a great refresher course for experienced beekeepers, who may learn
new techniques or better understand the behavior of their bees. Class participants
are also encouraged to meet and socialize with others who share their interest in
the amazing honeybee. Numerous beekeeping clubs and associations meet regularly throughout
Arkansas, providing beekeepers with continuing opportunities to socialize, share,
This event is FREE, however, if you are interested in attending, due to limited space,
you must pre-register by calling 870-779-3609. It will fill up fast! This event will
be Monday, November 7th, 14th, and 21st, 2016 during the evenings.
