Hello, my name is Louis Capezuto. I am a former Maryland State Apiary Inspector. My duties with the State of Maryland included inspecting honey bee colonies for diseases, pests and pesticide losses. Recommending appropriate measures for honey bee colony management and the control of bee diseases. I have owned and operated a honey bee apiary for approximately 15 years. I raise local queens. I also provide nucleus colonies to beginner and commercial beekeepers, and those who want to replenish losses. I produce a variety of honey from my apiaries which is sold throughout the Tri-state area. I am an active member of several local beekeeper associations, where I assist with educating beekeepers, promoting natural beekeeping and methods, encouraging beekeeping as a hobby and promoting a positive public image of beekeeping.
