Join guest instructor Paul Koski from the San Francisco Beekeepers Association for this four part Urban Beekeeping series! Come learn all that you need to know to manage your own urban bee hive in San Francisco.

In this third class we will explore the elements of a healthy, mature honeybee colony. Topics will include assessing queen health, recognizing a healthy pattern of eggs, larvae and pupae. How to provide enough space for colony growth and adding a super for storage of excess honey will be explained. Integrated pest management practices for dealing with honeybee pests & diseases will be discussed. We will also explore behavior and communication among worker bees for locating and foraging on nectar & pollen sources. If weather permits, we will examine a healthy hive to demonstrate the concepts discussed. Part III of Beekeeping Series.
