This is a 2-day classroom and apiary course designed for those that need knowledge and skills before being confident to take on their own bees. |
The course will cover:
• Life Cycle of the Honey Bee
• Equipment usage
• Colony Management
• Pests & Diseases
• Swarm Control
• Practical Honey Bee Handling and Hive Inspection
Both days will consist of mornings in the classroom and the afternoons in the apiary.
However, under certain weather conditions, it will not be possible for the bee hives to be opened. In that case, the afternoon apiary sessions will be rescheduled for another day.
