The Honey Bee - the official State Insect of Kansas since 1976.
© All rights reserved by Kansas Honey Producers Association.
At our bi-annual meetings, you will find lectures, hands-on workshops and discussions. These meetings are held for beekeepers with any level of skill, experience or ability. Topics on introductory beekeeping tools and techniques, as well as learning opportunities for the more advanced beekeeper will be available.
Did you know? The honey bee is the State Insect of Kansas. Kansas designated the honey bee as official state insect in 1976 in response to a petition signed by over 2000 Kansas school children to make the honey bee the state insect. A quote from Kansas House Bill 2236; "... The honey bee is like all Kansan's in that it is proud; only fights in defense of something it cherishes; is a friendly bundle of energy; is always helping others throughout its lifetime; is a strong, hard worker with limitless abilities; and is a mirror of virtue, triumph and glory;... The honey bee, by making its honey, gives not only to Kansans but also to all the world's peoples a gift which is sweet and wholesome, something which all Kansans strive to emulate in other ways."
