Housmam, John L.; And Others
The study guide contains introductory level information, principles and management practices which may be applied by a hobbyist or a commercial apiary. The lessons are designed to train students for entry level jobs, to establish students in a beekeeping enterprise, and to emphasize the importance of honey bees in our daily lives and in agricultural production. Topics to be considered include: the honeybee and her products, colony organization, housing and equipment, bee selection, apiary location, hive management, diseases, honey production, and laws and regulations. Each lesson plan includes activity, information, and project sheets, glossary and references, quizzes, and answer sheets. The study guide is intended to supplement community resources, on-the-job training, and provide the student with performance objectives during classroom instruction. (Author/MW)
