first_imgSubmitted by Timberland Regional LibraryYour yard could be humming with the sound of contented honeybees. Local beekeeper and swarm chaser Kellie Shincke will be at the Lacey Timberland Library from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, February 4 to walk people through the basics of backyard beekeeping and answer questions.Topics will include natural beekeeping, hive designs, bee friendly plants, bee feeding, and maintenance. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to set up a bee colony and become a friend to bees and other pollinators.Ms. Shincke fell in love with bees when she set up two top-bar hives in her Olympia backyard a few years ago. She also learned the art of swarm capture and bee removal and now keeps over 15 hives of various designs. Shincke owns Working Girls Urban Bee Company and is an active member of the Olympia Beekeepers Association, a non-profit organization that provides education, training and support for beekeepers in Thurston County.
