Virtual Bee Fun Day (Great Plains Master Beekeeping)

Beekeeping Fun Day video conference

Date: Time: 8:15 am–5:00 pm
Zoom App
Contact: Sheldon Brummel, (402) 472-8378,
The 2-day virtual fun day will include research lectures by experts from a variety of universities, agencies, and organizations that focus on a multitude of topics including honey bee health, stressors impacting our colonies, honey bee pheromones, and much more. There will also be management lectures describing how to handle things such as mite pressure, pesticide exposure and monitoring, planting and managing bee friendly landscapes, and queen rearing.

Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, state restrictions have caused many beekeeping fun days and seminars to be cancelled across the mid-west. The Great Plains Master Beekeeping (GPMB) program, a program created out of demand for beekeeping courses in the mid-west, has decided to put on a Virtual Bee Fun Day. It is a free event, with suggested donations to help benefit beekeeper associations and the Great Plains Master Beekeeping program.
