Join local professional beekeeper Judy Casale as she describes a year in the life of a beehive, what is involved in starting one’s own beehive and how all of us can help local honeybees who are facing increasing threats from pesticides and diseases by creating a bee-friendly garden. Judy carefully tends fifty beehives scattered throughout Castro Valley, Livermore, Fremont, Pleasanton, Hayward and Lafayette, California. (Beehives are like potato chips. You can’t just have one). She keeps her honeybees healthy by using disease resistant queens, and organic treatment protocols. She sells at local farmer markets under her company name Dominique Honeybees ( named for her father).
