“Newbees” buzzing over Bee Whisperer’s Beekeeping Classes

“Newbees” buzzing over Bee Whisperer’s Beekeeping Classes

Colony collapse disorder, parasites, pesticides and lack of nectar baring flowers have all contributed to real problems for Maine’s state insect the honeybee and pollinators generally, but a Hampden man, Peter Cowin, AKA The Bee Whisperer, aims to reverse the fortunes of local honeybees.

“There is a growing interest in finding out how to help honeybees and what’s involved in keeping your own honeybee hives” says Cowin. “While commercial beekeepers have struggled with these issues, hobbyists who can give their bees that little extra attention are successfully rearing bees on farms, in back yards, even on roof tops! The key is learning more about bees: where to locate your hives and what equipment, treatments and methods work best locally.”
