Beginning Beekeeping Class at The Bee Store – Inspections

January 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 8:30 pm


Welcome to Beekeeping 102! This class will cover basic beekeeping including beekeeping tools, how to light a smoker (and keep it lit!), receiving your bees, installing your bees, and conducting inspections.  We will go into detail about what to look for during routine inspections. Attendees should bring note-taking materials.

Who should attend? New beekeepers and those who will become beekeepers. This is the second class in our Beekeeping Class Series building on the principles we taught in Beekeeping 101 – All about the bees. While not critical, we do recommend taking the classes in sequence as they build upon each other.

  • What: Beekeeping 102
  • WhenJan 13, 2019  – 5:00PM to 8:30 PM
  • Where: The Bee Store LLC, 2230 D Tacketts Mill Dr, Lake Ridge, VA 22192

  • How Many: 15

We’re limiting this class to only 15 seats, so sign up ASAP and jump into the wild, wonderful, and sticky world of beekeeping in Northern Virginia! Taught by The Bee Store owner, John Klapperich, you’re sure to learn a lot from this seasoned beekeeper and founder of the local honey, Sweet Sophia.

Location: The Bee Store LLC is located in the Tackett’s Mill Shopping center on the lakeside – so if you see a Safeway and a PetValu, come around back. There’s plenty of parking and a scenic lake nearby and plenty of local shops to explore. We’re located just off I95 near up the road from Occoquan, Virginia.
