  Besides having our materials reviewed by some of the top beekeeping researchers in the country, it's also revised every year to reflect the new research and the new challenges.

We've been recognized by the governor's office for multiple years. And we're this state's largest organization for contributions into honeybee research.

And we don't teach beekeeping lore. For example, most books and classes teach the annual preventive application of antibiotics on beehives. That's bad science, bad medicine, and... well... just bad.

And many teachers recommend the murder of queen cells and queens in favor of purchased queens on a routine basis. You'd be right if you thought this might narrow the gene pool and potentially weaken the health of bees overall. While there may be reasons to replace a queen, "because it's September" is just plain... silly.
