Beekeeping Club Resumes Activities after Rough Winter

The Beekeeping Club had its first meeting on May 12 after a long winter and early spring filled with inclement weather. Along with club advisor, Ms. Janet Rooney, the group checked out York Prep’s five hives on the building’s rooftop.

Guest beekeeper, Danny Senter, introduced new members to the technical aspects of the life of a hive. He showed how to “smoke the bees” to calm them down in order to open and inspect the hives, which had been dormant during the cold months.
