This is the easiest way to learn the basics in one swoop. This class is both the 4-hour beginner combo class AND the 2 hours Diseases & Pests class. Once you leave this class, you'll be armed with the basics of beekeeping and what might go wrong with them, then, how to fix it. This class will only be offered once, maybe twice each spring, depending on sign-ups, otherwise, you can still take these classes, they are just offered on different dates.
Taught by a Master Beekeeper, this class covers all the topics from both
101,102 & 106 classes in a time saving day long seminar. This class will
teach you everything you need to know in order to start your own hives
in one sitting. The first 2 hours talks about hive placement, installing
your bees, hive parts and pieces, tools and more. The second two hours
covers how the bees interact with each other, biology, forage habits,
swarming and tips/tricks for successful beekeeping. The last 2 hours will cover potential hive issues and how to treat both naturally and chemically. It is a lot of
information to take in, so bring paper and pen to take notes.
have two 15-minute breaks and 1 half hour lunch break. Food & Drink will be provided for the half hour break. Class will last approximately 6.5 hours.
