Vad du kommer att göra

We will start off talking about some of the history of Honey Bees, the different types of bees (queens, workers, drones) that we will see in the hive, the bee life-cycle, inner beehive activities, beehive equipment and more. We will then put on bee suits and visit a working beehive to see the bees in real life. Inside the hive we will find the queen and look for eggs, larva and pupa. We might even see a queen laying an egg. When finished at the hive, we will return to the house and answer any other questions about bees.
Note:
- Honey Bees are very sensitive to cold temperatures. In the unlikely event that outside temperatures drop to less than +5 deg C, the experience will be cancelled with full refunds.
Other things to note
Guests should be aware that there will be a high number of bees flying about once the hive is opened. This can be very intimidating to some people.

Special Experience dates and times can be arranged, please send me a message with your preferred date/time.

I have been a Honey Bee Beekeeper in the Calgary area for over 11 years. I host beekeeper learning sessions for members of our local Beekeeper's Club and mentor new beekeepers. Honeybees are one of the major pollinators of the world and help pollinate 1/3 of the food we eat. I am very passionate about maintaining/increasing the health and population of our honey bees. I enjoy sharing my beekeeping experience and hope to provide people with an exciting and memorable experience as well as a better understanding about bees - maybe the knowledge will encourage you to become a beekeeper.

My girlfriend and I had a great time here. Roy is a great storyteller and it was pretty interesting to learn about the bees and their process.

My teenage boys and their teenage cousins had a wonderful time! I wasn’t able to go with them at the list minute and wasn’t sure what they would make of it but they returned just raving about their experience and excitedly sharing all of the new things they learned and saw. Roy, thank you so much for wonderful afternoon and for the special treats at the end! They all said how much you remind them of my favourite uncle, which is high praise. And thank you for sharing your passion with the kiddos and for making learning so exciting for them! Highly recommend!

My children & I thought this was a very good experience at a beautiful location, much closer to Calgary than I had first thought. Roy & Sharon were extremely accommodating & hospitable. They obviously have a wealth of experience. Roy was interesting to listen to & very informative. When were suited up & Roy took us to the hives, it was fascinating. I would highly recommend this experience.

This was a very unique experience. I'm glad that Roy and Sharon offered to share their expertise about bee societies. Roy's enthusiasm about the subject was contagious. I was so excited to learn about the bees and I learned a lot. I'm a science/biology teacher from Toronto. I will pass on the knowledge to my students that I gained during this trip. Thank you Sharon and Roy!
