How are we looking? In this mid-season session, we will check in to see how to manage challenges that come up over the season. Do you need to add room or split a colony? How do you check for swarming or identify a parasite problem? We will discuss all kinds of potential issues that can come up and get to the bottom board of how to recognize and solve it.

Honey Extraction

How sweet it is! This workshop will focus all on honey: how to extract and how much to remove, what to use, how to process it, and of course how it tastes!!

Preparing for Winter

As you ve successfully seen your bees over the warm season, it s time to hunker down and get ready for the frost.  We will close out our series by determining all the ways to keep your bees warm, safe and healthy over the cold months.
