Package Installation

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The scouts installed two hives in the Harvard yard on Saturday April 17, 2010.   The scouts were busy on Saturday morning with a service project so Ruby and Maria accompanied me to Jones Bee Company to retrieve the packages.  The hives are sitting on heavy stone platforms, pitched forward a few degrees for drainage.  The hives contain in-hive feeders with sugar water as well as hive-top feeders with screened inner covers for ventilation.  JT Martin, District 6 city councilman, was there to talk about the new Salt Lake City Beekeeping Ordinance.   Danielle Downey, our state bee inspector, was there to talk about agricultural policies and enforcement.   Danielle fields media questions about bees in Utah and helps beekeepers to maintain healthy hives.
