Green Gulch Farm & Zen Center Beginning Beekeeping, Part IV: Preparing Honeybees for Winter

The honeybee season will be coming to an end soon and we must prepare our bees now for a time of limited bloom. Many beekeepers lose colonies during the wintertime and it is usually because of poor preparation. This workshop will focus on practices that will better ensure the health of the hive. The following topics will be discussed and demonstrated: how much honey to remove before winter; how much honey to leave for the bees; disease and mite control; checking the health of the queen; introducing a new queen; splitting the hive; combining hives; feeding; and weatherizing the hive and its surroundings. A vegetarian lunch is included in the cost of registration. Wear light colored clothing and bring a veil if you have one. Children welcome. Meets on Pool Deck.

Fee: $30
