New vendor and demonstrator announcement for Old School Survival Boot Camp 2022! In addition to offering beekeeping items for sale, Brian Crow of Bee Guy Supplies will also be demonstrating how to build hives and put frames together at his booth. Brian will be offering hive demonstrations on building frames and hives from his vendor booth throughout the day. He worked in landscaping for over 15 years and became intrigued with bees about 12 years ago when he first met a Master Beekeeper. She showed him how bees can be kept anywhere there is pollination and taught him how to artificially inseminate a queen for genetics.
Brian is a member of three local bee clubs and was awarded a plaque at Central Ohio Beekeepers Association (COBA) for putting in a pollinator garden in the first year bee yard. He has spoken at schools and is a Mentor to a class of new high school beekeepers who built their own beehive from scratch in Circleville, Ohio.
Crow started Bee Guy Supplies in 2018 when he was having a hard time finding supplies and wanted to help others with their journey. On the third Thursday each month Brian and his customers get together to chat and learn from each other. He has no problem with showing his hive successes and failures during the meeting.
At the Bee Guy Supplies booth you will also find educational sheets for learning about bees, hive maintenance supplies, honey dippers, and honey sticks.
