Early Spring Buildup Management and installs. During this session we will focus on making sure the brood have enough space to build up and resources spaced properly. At this point we want to encourage fast growth across the apiary and start the prevention of swarming. This means making sure the bigger colonies don’t want to swarm, so we can share their resources to the weaker colonies. Last, we will build up the apiary count by installing nucs.
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.
