Intermediate Beekeeping

ID : 7368   
« back to classes page

This class is designed for students with an existing knowledge of beekeeping, and those who have existing beehives. We will discuss keeping bees locally, the way to start a hive (package versus nucleus), and different options for foundation. The class will focus on IPM approaches, different options for tackling parasitic Varroa mites, and seasonal hive management techniques. We will review natural approaches to IPM in place of harsh chemicals. Students will be encouraged to compare notes and strategies, and to foster community engagement and mentorship.

Students will leave with detailed knowledge about treating for Varroa mites, and a seasonal outline for hive management.
