Jozlyn Lee was awarded a beekeeping scholarship from the Iowa Honey Producers Association. She will receive her honeybees in April after she has assembled her bee hive.

Jozlyn Lee, of Mt. Pleasant, has been awarded a beekeeping scholarship from the Iowa Honey Producers Association.

Lee will receive a bee hive, beekeeping equipment, honeybees, a mentor and beekeeping classes. She will receive her beekeeping equipment soon and begin to assemble her hive. In late April, Lee will receive her honeybees and install them into her hive with the help of her mentor.

Throughout the spring and summer, Lee will check on her honeybees to monitor their progress and watch for anything that would be harmful to them.

In the fall, there may be some honey to harvest; however, the goal for the first year of a new hive is to get it through its first Iowa winter. Winter preparation and pest management typically happens in mid- to late fall.
