Introduction to Hands On Beekeeping 2015

1. Dry place to live of adequate size.
2. Quality Food ? carbohydrate & protein.
3. Protection from disease and parasite.

Beekeepers Must:
? Understand and apply beekeeping concepts & life cycle of honey bee.
? Effectively communicate with their honey bees.

My Goal:

?I am very interested in helping you learn how to keep honey bees efficiently and effectively. ?
You learn how to do this by:

 Class room instruction
 Use tools and techniques discussed in class
 Hands- on experience
 Working with fellow students -- develop a partnership
Apply concepts to meet challenges

Jim Lathem is instructor. Jim Beekeeping Experience

My interest in honey bees started as a young boy when honey bees would visit flowers in our garden and pollinate our pear trees. I stood for hours at Texas Beekeeper Association booth at State Fair of Texas watching honey bees.
While attending Edgewood High School, I bought my first hive of honey bees. I was 16. I learned how to keep honey bees reading Gleaning In Bee Culture and studying Walter T. Kelley?s How to Keep Bees and Sell Honey. I was not aware of any local bee associations or local bee- keepers. Not the best way to learn beekeeping ? School of Hard Knocks.
I kept bees in an out yard for 15 years near Bloomington, IL. During that time, I took Dr. Elbert R. Jaycox?s bee class at the University of Illinois. He is the author of Beekeeping In The Midwest.
My wife and I retired in 2002 and returned to Texas. I resumed beekeeping on my farm near Edgewood next to the location where I lived while attending Edgewood High School. I am a hobby beekeeper.
I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin -- BBA degree and from Illinois State University in Normal -- Master of Science degree in Applied Computer Science. I was an Office Industrial Engineer, Records Manager, and Data Administrator for State Farm Auto Insurance Corporate Headquarters, Bloomington, IL. Being a professional in each of these fields, I was always involved in continuing education and applying concepts was essential to function effectively.
I served three years in the United States Army.
I teach beekeeping concepts and how to apply them using hands-on experience.
