Beekeeping Basics!

Mike Risk is currently the President of the Center of Michigan Beekeepers Club (COMB) and has been a hobbyist and sideline beekeeper for 32 years. Mike's interest in beekeeping began when he discovered bees in the walls of a farmhouse he bought in Eaton County all those years ago. These days he concentrates his efforts on making honey and raising queens which are acclimated to the Michigan climate and disease resistant to today's pests and maladies plaguing honey bees.

Mike speaks and teaches at various venues about beekeeping and the plight of the honey bee. His favorite engagements are at his grandchildren's classes here he takes his observation hive and talks to the children about the value of honey bees as pollinators.

Mike and his wife, Sidney, live on a small farm near Lainsburg, MI where they have large gardens, fruit trees and chickens, raise bees, sell honey and manage around 100 hives.

Join us on July 26th from 1-3pm as Mike Risk, experienced beekeeper and President of the Center of Michigan Beekeepers; discusses beekeeping, its history and the obstacles that beekeepers now face.  For more information, please visit Rick’s Apirary and Honey House.
