This intermediate level beekeeping workshop will discuss the causes of and reasons for honeybee swarms, how to manage and reduce the swarm impulse in your own hives, and what to do if you notice swarming behavior in your colonies.
If weather and time permit, we may head outside to the apiary. Please wear long pants, closed toe shoes, and bring your veil if you have one.
Instructor: Nancy Mangion, experienced beekeeper and owner of Beekeepers Warehouse in Woburn, MA
FREE of charge. However, raw local honey will be for sale, so bring some spending money if you’d like some.
