This is a four day course teaching beekeeping techniques focused on the second year of beekeeping. The end result will be beekeepers who can over-winter, rebuild, and expand their hives; perform Spring management techniques that result in high honey producing hives while minimizing swarming; detect and address honey bee diseases and predators; and conduct Fall management practices that give their bees the best chance to successfully overwinter.
