Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library presents Beekeeping Basics, offered by Dave Edwards, of the Knox Lincoln County Beekeepers Association, June 25, in the upstairs Community Room. Beekeeping as a hobby is fun and inexpensive. In addition to hours of enjoyment, while quietly sitting and watching them work diligently, there’s the bonus of delicious honey to share with friends and family. Recently, Varroa and Tracheal mites have invaded the United States and have killed nearly all wild honey bee hives across the country. The need for managed bee hives has never been greater then it is now.
