One of the greatest challenges to beekeeping in Massachusetts is getting colonies through the winter. Last year Eastern MA beekeepers lost over 50% of their colonies over the winter months; the bees (and beekeepers) need all the help they can get! Come learn from a panel of experienced local beekeepers the techniques they have used and found to be successful for overwintering! The panel will include beekeepers tending Langstroth and Top Bar Hives (all of whom have successfully overwintered their hives). This session will be indoors and include instructions for how to prepare your hive for winter, with time for Q & A after the panel presentation.

Note: Due to a scheduling conflict, there will no longer be a Warre beekeeper on the panel.
