Bee on a Daisy

Troop 989 Beekeeping Project

In 2017, Troop 989 was lucky enough to inherit a beehive along with a beekeeping mentor, Mr. Lemoine.  Since then the troop hive has grown into 3 thriving colonies of bees and produced hundreds of jars of branded "Bee Prepared" honey!  The beehives are located in Southwest Littleton, CO and need to be checked on and cared for every few weeks.  The scouts treat them for mites, feed them sugar water in the early spring and harvest and jar the liquid gold honey in the fall.  Our bees are pretty friendly but have been known to sting in the fall when they are protecting their honey and brood. Our scouts have learned so much from the beekeeping experience.  We couldn't be successful without our bee mentor, Mr. John Limoine and Beekeeping Coordinator, Mrs. Heather Sondgerath.
