On-site beeyards are part of the Conference & Short Course! From basic lessons to advanced workshops, the apiaries are there for you! With help from able instructors, learn how to “read” a frame, find a queen, spot a great brood pattern, and identify supercedure & swarm cells.
The more experienced may learn about common hive problems and how to solve them (drone-laying workers, drone-laying queens, wax moths, hive beetles, Varroa mites, mice, etc.). Find out when and how to combine hives, split hives, how to replace queens, work a top bar hive and much more!
The Short Course has both a Basic and an Advanced Level. Students may drift between levels and courses within each level, provided attendance does not exceed room capacity.
