New Beek in Indianapolis
My brother is giving me a beehive in a few weeks. I'm new to beekeeping myself, but both grandfathers were beekeepers, so I should be able to turn to my brother and aunts and uncles for advise. I've already looked around the neighborhood and noticed quite a few nectar sources for my bees in addition to my own garden and a school garden we are planning. Has anyone out there had any experience introducing grade school kids to beehives? My two young grandsons live with me and I'm quite sure they will want to show off the hive and I need to know whether or not to just make the area off limits, period.
