Bill Lewis Speaks at Long Beach Beekeepers Meeting

"Long-time commercial beekeeper Bill Lewis, of Bill’s Bees, drew the largest crowd of the year to the Sunday meeting of the Long Beach Beekeepers. Along with dispensing tips (Wear a ball cap under your veil to keep the mesh off your face) and tricks (Put a wet sponge in your bee hat to keep you cool), Bill demonstrated hive-inspection techniques (Tip the boxes up and inspect from the bottom, and never open a hive without a purpose in mind), queen-spotting methods and answered a variety of questions from the group. Bill also contributed a box of comb honey for the club raffle, which raised a record $90." ~Dick Barnes
