For the most part the kids are pretty quiet. They did ask a few questions like how long does the queen live, will we get to see her today. I find they are very observant like they can find a dead bee being dragged around the hive, they found varroa mites on the bees and they find the drones very easily. They were very happy when I pulled out the frame of honey. They are basically very calm and peaceful around the bees. Many of these kids are starting hives this year. The parents are starting hives with them.
Some of the parents have taken beekeeping classes, some of the parents are going to wing it and learn as they go.
A TBH is being built for the 4H club and should be ready pretty soon. We will all learn together on how to manage this hive, as I do not have any experience with TBH's, but I have been reading and reading up on them.
