MSU Extension Specialist, Walter Pett, has placed two demonstration honey bee hives at the Forgotten Harvest Farm, near Fenton, and two at the Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center, near Richville. Along with Extension Educator, Ben Phillips, we would like to invite beekeepers of all ages and experience levels to learn about the various methods for removing honey from honey bee hives, inspecting the colonies for Varroa mites, and wintering strategies. Bring protective equipment for interacting with demonstration hives.
