Bee Ranching — A Fun New Hobby at Floyd Memorial Library

March 8, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Join North Fork beekeeper and owner of Blossom Meadow Laura Klahre as she discusses the art of bee ranching Mason Bees and Leafctter bees and their importance for our own gardens and farms.

These bees are known to carry such large loads of pollen that they look like flying Cheetos snacks!

Proven to be an excellent replacement pollinator for the troubled honeybee, Masons and Leafcutters are fascinating, good-natured and relatively easy to keep.
