Kim Flottum, Editor of Bee Culture Magazine, and Shane Gebauer, from Brushy Mountain Bee Supply in North Carolina, will discuss what's going on in your hives, now that you've had them up and running for a few weeks.
You'll see exactly what to look for when evaluating your queen is she doing what you expect and what's best for the colony? Or, is there a problem that needs to be addressed? How much brood is there, and is it in good shape, and do you need to give the bees more room now, or wait? And what about those irksome pests that seem to show up, especially varroa mites? We'll show how to measure how many, if any you have, and then discuss what to do... nothing if you are raising survivor bees, or helpful management tricks to reduce mite populations without using harmful chemicals.
So get registered today for this informational beekeeping webinar. Don't miss what's going on in your hives... and stay ahead of the bees this year.
