Sunday, October 6 – 9:00am – 12:00pm
Instructor: Gordon Mackay
The interest and popularity of this wonderful craft is increasing every year. It is very important to become familiarised with the hive and the honey bee before you get your bees to maximize your chances of success. This workshop will focus on the beginner beekeeper who is planning on setting up a hive in the spring, or for those that have had bees for a year.
We will cover the basics of getting started, equipment required, dealing with potential pest (yes we will be talking about those pesky Varroa mites!) and disease problems in the hive along with looking at some favourite honey bee plants.We will also cover some tips on how to get your bees ready for winter. There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions throughout the class and time will be left at the end for further questions too.
