You've learned the basics and now you want to learn some finer points of handling bees. The class will be part lecture and part hands-on. Make sure you bring your protective clothing!
Please note that there will also be classes on more advanced beekeeping topics through the spring and summer.
Classes run from 9:00 to 3:00 with a lunch break (and lunch of deli sandwich, chips, cookie, and a beverage) provided. There will be an opportunity to purchase supplies and equipment during the lunch break. The class will contain the following subjects:
- Lift smarter, not harder
- Inspect without crushing bees
- Getting comb drawn
- Using your smoker
