The Complete Beekeeping Short Course covers everything you need to know to get started, with no prior experience required. The information is broken down into short units, to view at your convenience. Each section builds on previously covered material, to give the new beekeeper a good foundation of knowledge, or to provide an experienced beekeeper with a solid refresher course. All lectures are presented by UA Extension apiculture specialist Dr. Jon Zawislak, an EAS-certified Master Beekeeper.
Because the beekeeping industry is always changing to adapt to new challenges, this video series can be a great refresher course for experienced beekeepers, who may learn some new techniques or better understand the behavior of their bees.
Beekeepers are encouraged to meet and socialize with others who share their interest
in the amazing honey bee. Numerous beekeeping clubs and associations meet regularly throughout Arkansas, providing members with continuing opportunities
to socialize, share, and learn. If you are looking for information on local area
beekeeper club meetings, visit the website of the Arkansas Beekeepers Association to find a group near you.
