Spring Beehive Management, Ashland

Be a ‘Beekeeper’, not a ‘Bee Reaper’! In this section of Beginning Beekeeping, Bee Girl will discuss honey bee biology and common honey bee hive pests and pathogens, as well as treatments in integrated pest management.

• How do I know if my hive is “queenless”?
• When and what do I “feed” my bees?
• How many Varroa mites are too many?
• And what is that goo in the comb?

Are all questions that will be answered, among many others.

Beehive Management also features an additional apiary session. Please join for a hands-on beekeeping experience and a demonstration of how to “inspect” a beehive for proper function and health, and also observe Varroa mite monitoring and treatment methods.

Attendance of a Spring Management classroom session is a prerequisite. Space is limited, so the location of the class will be given upon registration.

    I'm actually not a rookie any more, so I'm not planning to attend, but I am looking for some bees for my hives. I have 2 empty top bar hives that froze or starved this winter when I moved them to Grants Pass from Brookings. Maybe I'll be lucky and some bees will volunteer to move in :-) In the mean time, I'm noticing how many non-honeybee pollinators there are in my yard. After all, the honeybee is not native to America and I'm trying to provide a good habitat for all pollinators, especially native ones!

    Are the Ashland, Medford and Grants Pass meetups covering the same information?
