This is a great course for people just starting in beekeeping or people that are interested in beekeeping and want to see what it is all about.
This is an interactive course, covering the following topics:
- Honeybee basics
- Installing a nucleus hive (nuc)
- Hive Inspections
- Diseases and Pests
- Common mistakes
- Q&A (to the best of our beekeeper's ability)
This course will be hands-on, and rain or shine. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring your own protective gear if you have it (a beekeeper's veil will be sufficient) as we will be working with live bees! If you need equipment, we do have a few sets that we can lend you, just let us know in advance to reserve your set. We also have equipment for sale that you can purchase the day of the course.
The cost is $75 per person, full payment in advance, non-refundable, unless we cancel the course.
We limit the courses to 10 persons and they sell out fast - reserve your spot today!
