Grow Your Apiary Naturally with Splits and Swarms

May 9 @ 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

$55.00

In this half-day workshop, Pfeiffer Center beekeeper Bill Day will present the biology of queen-rearing and swarming (the honeybee’s natural form of reproduction), and how to apply that knowledge to catching swarms and making your own splits. Weather permitting, much of the workshop will take place in the Pfeiffer Center garden, where Bill will demonstrate the techniques discussed in the classroom.

You will leave this workshop with clear guidelines on how to propagate your own hives and “get off the package treadmill.”
