Join us for our ADVANCED/INTERMEDIATE BEEKEEPING workshop!

Our advanced/intermediate course is intended as a refresher for those who currently keep bees, or as a follow up to our Intro to Beekeeping course for those working toward owning their own colony.

We will start with a brief in class session to review advanced topics including queen health, queen rearing (overview), equalizing hives, splitting hives, types of splits, timing, etc, and treatments. We will then move into an in-hive demo by Dave to review locating the queen, how to divide resources, equalizing brood and installing a queen. Then you will get your hands dirty and complete a split on site! We will inspect various hives to look at multiple beekeeping scenarios and discuss solutions. Experience or previous attendance to our seminars is required.

Please note purchases are non-refundable. Classes run from approx 1-4:30pm unless otherwise specified.
