New Honey Bee Resources

New Honey Bee Resources

New local resources are available both to those who want to keep honey bees and to those that want to get rid of them. A new beekeeping supply store, Deseret Hive Supply, has opened at 1518 Washington Boulevard in Ogden. Calling ahead is recommended (801-866-3245), because their business hours are limited. Weber County also has a new beekeeping club, the Weber Beekeepers Association, which meet at the main Ogden Library. More information about this club can be found at weberbeekeepersassociation.com. USU Extension is planning several beekeeping classes and pollinator education workshops in the coming months. The schedule for these is regularly updated on bees.usu.edu. You can also find information on the Utah Bees Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pages/Utah-Bees/392063520806415). Lastly, there is a new website to help homeowners across the Wasatch Front that are the unwilling hosts to swarming honey bees: www.utahswarmremoval.com.
