 Come join us as we take care of our colonies and prepare them for the blackberry flow.  This means assessing their efficiency and checking their mites.  If you are looking to learn about when to add boxes, when to split, how to equalize your hives, and when the blackberries are coming, this is the class for you.  We will work on two different aperies.

The cost of this class will be $50 per session & will be taught by Danny Najera. 

 We will meet at Bees in the ‘Burbs at 12:45pm.  28634 Maple Valley Black Diamond Rd. SE, Maple Valley, Wa 98038

We only have room for 10 people, so if you’d like to join us please stop by the store a soon as possible to sign up.

Warm regards,
