We have an awesome opportunity for 10 people (per class) to join us for a day of beekeeping!
We will be checking on the progress of our colonies, installing nucs, and working on our queen finding and beginning mite training.
Some colonies need help building up while others are already in swarm mode. Nucleus colonies (Nucs) are in coming in and they need help. Come learn how to deal with each of these circumstances. We will also practice our sugar shakes on the overwintered colonies. If the queens are ready we will do some re-queening. Come learn firsthand what it’s all about!
The cost of this class will be $50 per session and is NON-REFUNDABLE due to the fact that it is a small class & fills up fast. This class will be taught by Danny Najera.
You will need to bring the following:
You may also be required to lift heavy bee boxes.
