Please bring your own CLEAN protective gear and MASK. We have a selection of bee suits and veils available for purchase here if you don’t already have one. We will supply you with a hive tool and smoker for your use while you are here. Please wear appropriate clothes and footwear, we will be outside rain or shine. You will be working hands-on in the hives and you will get dirty. You can bring a notepad and pen, but the objective will be to have your hands in the hives; I will have handouts that you can review online using Dropbox and download for your own use.
