Dýraupplifun sem Martin býður upp á

4 klst.
Innifalið: matur, búnaður
Allt að 8 manns
Tungumál: enska

Það sem verður gert

Saturdays $85 per person. Any other day $150 (due to low numbers on weekdays). Airbnb has been glitching showing other currencies.

We'll be going into a hands-on beekeeping fun and educational experience. After an introduction and safety lesson, you will be taught how to be a beekeeper including topics such as tools and equipment, bee life cycles and roles, pests and diseases, Queen rearing. Flow hive Q & A. How to merge a hive, how to move a hive, how to catch a swarm, how to split a hive.

Following the theory lesson, a quick break and another chance for tea/coffee. In the second half, we will get suited into the protective clothing and start the hands-on part. We will first light the smokers (to make the bees docile) then I will demonstrate opening up a beehive for an inspection.

Then it is over to you, it's your turn to open up a beehive, pull out the frames one by one and try to find the queen, check she is laying eggs properly, check there are no pests or parasites attacking the hive on the inside and check the bees are building the comb straight.

Tastings of various honeys to follow.

PROTECTIVE SUITS PROVIDED

I only have adult-sized bee suits and holding beehive frames requires some strength, therefore children under 12 cannot participate. Any younger than 12 must provide own suit, contact me first and make a special arrangement.

Run time is approximate
Other things to note
There is a slight chance of being stung by a bee. For that reason I would not suggest this for those with a bee allergy. This typically only happens when people wear inappropriate shoes or socks.

Martin’s beekeeping course was the highlight of our little holiday! What an experience! My partner and I went in extremely nervous but Martin is so welcoming, knowledgable and reassuring that we felt much more comfortable by the end of it. Martin had a wealth of knowledge, and you can tell the information he gives you has been personally tried and tested. We have already recommended this experience to our friends and family. Thank you Martin!

Wow, what a fantastic day! Even better than I was expecting! Martin was so generous in sharing his knowledge and ensured all participants got hands on experience. Lots of opportunity to ask questions pertinent to your needs. Have to say this would be an amazed day for anyone, not just someone wanting to get into beekeeping! Just interesting and a really unique experience. Martin also kindly rescheduled our visit when we had a clash with other responsibilities. Highly recommended.

Martin not only knows about beekeeping, but imparts his knowledge in an easy, friendly manner, complete with great stories. The experience is a great blend of theory and hands on practical work with lots of fun and laughs and Martin is more than happy to answer as many questions as possible, both during and after the course.

Martin is a fantastic teacher and a font of knowledge when it comes to beekeeping. This is a total immersion in beekeeping and the interaction, checking the hives and the experience of realising that you have approx 40 bees just sitting on your leg is pretty awesome. We had a lot of fun, had all of our questions asked and I would recommend this experience to anyone who is even remotely interested in bees or beekeeping.

This is a great experience for anyone who is a beginner to beekeeping. Martin devotes equal time to theory and practical experience. Both aspects are informed by his knowledge and passion for beekeeping. Martin has given me the skills and knowledge to start my own hive and I would highly recommend the experience to others.
