Learning for Life: Bee keeping in Alaska

While it is early spring many beekeepers in Alaska have already placed their “bee” order and are getting hives ready for their arrival. If you are thinking about entering the fascinating world of beekeeping Cooperative Extension Service has a free publication titled “Beekeeping in Alaska” to help provide you with the information you’ll need. From hive construction to early feeding to blossom time this publication provides both novice and advanced beekeepers with information to help you succeed.

Your local Cooperative Extension Service is your year round resource for a variety of topics, visit us today at: http://www.uaf.edu/ces/districts/kenai/ to find this publication and more or stop by and see us in the Doors and Windows Building on K-Beach Road between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. We are “Learning for Life”.
