Work with Brian for a day - Advanced Hive Splitting Workshop
This workshop is an advanced workshop that will teach Hive Splitting, Nuc Building and how to Replenish Winter Losses and/or Increases the Hives in your Apiary.
If you are already a beekeeper with at least 1 full year of experience and are wanting to learn advanced beekeeping techniques then this course will give you the knowledge and hands on experience to start building a successful Apiary,
Learn through doing. That is how I figured it out. Come and work with me for a day. If you are not interested in learning while you work then this is not the workshop for you. This is hands on and you will be doing Splits, Building Nucs and Re-Queening actual hives.
Workshop is Limited to 3 People per day to ensure that you get the focused attention you need to succeed.
You will learn:
- How to replenish your winter losses.
- The different ways to Split your Hives to avoid swarming in the spring.
- Making more bees to grow the number of hives in your Apiary
- Making Nucleus Hives to generate income.
- Re-Queening Hives and adding Queens to Nucs.
- as well as advanced beekeeping techniques.
This is hands on. You will work with me in one of my yards for the day. We will discuss how to perform the different kinds of splits. We will find queens, build Splits and Nucs, Mark Queens and I will be yours for the day to answer any questions you might have while we work.
Workshop starts at 9:00 am on the dot. Be at the shop early. Transportation from the shop to the yard is provided. We finish when the yard is done. Probably 2:00 or 3:00 pm.
If you want to learn by doing, this is the opportunity for you.
