So you got your bees through winter…now what?
You thought getting your bees through winter was a challenge, now comes the real fun! An overwintered colony is a completely different beast to handle than the cute nuc or package you purchased the previous season. You have to consider how you will handle the strong swarming impulse of your colony, the increased presence of varroa and how to deal with it without chemical treatment, making increases, renewing comb and insuring a strong colony when the honey flow begins. This class will cover all that and more of what to do after with an overwintered colony. This class will be hosted in the field for hands on learning so bring your bee suit!
