Basics of Queen Management


Sunday 25th March
8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Cost is $169 per head

Notes: 
  • You must have your own hives (or regularly work with another beekeeper on their hives) and be comfortable with completing a general hive inspection.  There is not enough time in the programme for us to teach you the difference between a worker and a drone, or what capped brood vs capped honey looks like.
  • You need to be a current member to access this course - you can join online now and then register for the course.

Programme outline for pilot workshop:

  • Biosecurity for queen replacement, nucs etc.
  • Analysis of brood frames
  • Strengthening hives through frame rotation
  • Queen marking
  • Introducing a purchased queen
  • Creating a nuc / splitting a hive
  • Combining hives
  • Strengthening hives ahead of a honey flow 

We will be in the apiary doing as much hands on as possible – exactly what is done each time may vary depending on where we are in the season and what the hives are doing.

 

Bring:  


Scrubbed boots, clean bee suits and gloves for the practical part of the course. 

Light lunch, morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided
