Experiencia con animales ofrecida por Martin

4 horas
Incluye: comida, equipo
Hasta 8 personas
Hablamos Inglés

Qué harás

Saturdays $85 per person. Any other day $150 (due to low numbers on weekdays).

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.

No cancellations under 1 week from the starting date.

PLEASE NOTE: Airbnb has recently ruled experiences below 4.7 star rating can be deleted. It only takes 3 or 4 - 4 star reviews to do this damage.
The class is not perfect and it never will be, but please be aware 4 star reviews have severe consequences for me and other hosts.

About me: I have been a hobby beekeeper since 2014 and care for several hundred thousand bees. In addition to honey, I am the owner of Honey Wines Australia, the only operating meadery in the Hunter Region.

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.

Lo que debes saber

Política de cancelación

Todas las experiencias pueden cancelarse y reembolsarse completamente dentro de las 24 horas posteriores a la compra, o al menos 7 días antes del inicio de la experiencia.

Requisitos para los huéspedes

Pueden asistir 8 personas de 12 años de edad o más.

Más consejos

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.

Qué llevar

Fully enclosed shoes.

Normal length white socks. NOT ANKLE SOCKS.
