I'm about to do an impromptu presentation Thursday night to my son's cub scout pack. I'm going to tell them about bees, equipment, etc. away from the apiary. Then after we do that, we are heading to the hives, where I will do my best to find a queen for them. I did make up a little liability waiver form for them to sign. Just an idea. Let me know what you find! I want to do this some more in the future. I'm also going to have some honey for them to taste.
A word of Caution ;
If I may, " liability waiver ", please don't put much faith in this.
They are minors, you are invitieing them on to your property, your liability actually goes up !
Ever notice the signs at auctions, yard sales etc. " Not responsible for Accidents " legeally these aren't worth the paper they are written on.
When you open up that hive, be sure each are fully suited up.
Sounds like a great idea, but I'd give second thoughts in this sue happy day.
