Beekeeping for Beginners

Roy Arnold

Roy has been beekeeping for less than five years, but in that time he has rescued thousands of bees, re-queened hundreds of hives, and become an advocate for beginning beekeepers. He mentors anyone willing to learn, and goes out of his way to make sure new beekeepers feel comfortable caring for their hives. One of Roy’s biggest passions is putting a dent in the Africanized bee population, and is not timid in sharing his opinion on the importance of hive maintenance and re-queening feral hives.
