Spring Class. Registration required. No walk-ins. We recommend that you have taken a Beginners Class or have been a beekeeper for at least one year before this class.
Once your bees survive the winter, knowing what to do next is crucial. When to split? How to prevent swarming? When to add supers? Join us for this exciting spring class.
