Seasonal Skill Saturday: Winter Preperations

August 24 @ 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM

Join us at our training apiary for a session covering all things overwintering. We will talk about what colonies require to successfully overwinter, methods to prepare a colony for the best survival chances, and also cover certain manipulations to set up a hive correctly. After a bit of discussion and dry run-throughs, you will go into the colonies to assess them for overwintering suitability before deciding what needs to be done with each of these. Specific things to be covered include:

  • Feeding
  • Uniting
  • Disease inspections
  • Varroa control
  • Pests such as wasps and mice
