If you did not make it to our classes on how to get your bees through the winter, we have placed most of the content of this class in a small ebook available on Amazon or here on our website. 

David has spent years keeping bees, producing queens, making up packages of bees, crop pollination, removing bees from homes, speaking and writing about bees. Give David a call if you have any questions about our beekeeping classes.

With such a strong interest in beekeeping, you'll want to be sure and sign up early for our beekeeping classes. You'll learn about basic hive equipment, how to inspect a bee hive, how to avoid most stings, how to extract honey, how to find the queen, how to identify honey bee diseases and pests, seasonal management techniques, the 4 non-chemical ways to reduce varroa mites and much more.
