Whether your a total beginner or have some bees on your belt, this workshop will help you trouble shoot any sticky situation! In the second bee keeping workshop of this series, we will conduct hive inspections geared to determine the overall health and status of mid season honey bee colonies. We're getting up close and personal with our buzzing friends, hopefully we won't come across any mites during the process! Luckily we're in good hands with bee keeper Tim Cerniglia, he'll know what to do!
We will discuss inspection techniques, seek out the queen & look for eggs. We will look carefully at brood nest condition, determine bee population status and demonstrate how to survey for varroa mite loads in each colony.
