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.
