The Bayer Bee Health team was saddened to hear that Herb Everhart, the winner of our 2nd Annual Bayer Bee Care 2014 Community Leadership Award
, has passed away. Herb was a leader in the West Virginia beekeeping community and had a positive impact through youth and veteran programs.
For 13 years, he was the owner and operator of Eversweet Apiaries, a beekeeping and honey supplier. A past president and vice president of the West Virginia Eastern Panhandle Beekeeper's Association, Everhart served as an educator and mentor for aspiring beekeepers. He had a passion for honey bees and was devoted to educating the public about them. He was fondly referred to as the "Bee Whisperer" or "Bee Wizard." Herb also assisted in starting the Frank W. Buckles Veteran Beekeepers Association.
Herb is survived by his daughter Jennifer King, and he will continue to be cherished for years by his family, friends and students. For more information, his full obituary
