Cathedral is Buzzing into Spring with Beekeeping

Our Cathedral Bees have moved into their apiary! The Scouts from Troop 55 came to learn about the bees and see how they were introduced to their hives. The queen goes into the hive in a separate cage, with a candy plug which the bees will eat through to release her into the hive. This is done so that the bees can learn her pheromones, or scent, so that they can accept her.

We encourage all those who are interested in participating with the project to stay tuned as we announce inspection dates and share their progress. There will be opportunities for hive tours, observation, prayers inspired by bees and more. Be sure to check our weekly E-news for updates as we share videos of our inspections and cathedral bee-life photos.
