Event description

Description

This is a beekeeping class for our local urban beekeepers! This class will go into more details than our part 2 of making splits and nucs, including: specific splits that work well, what can go wrong and how to fix it, and which months/timing works best. We will go into detail on a specific split that reduces varroa mites on both sides of the split. We will also talk about simple ways to make queens. This class is meant to be taken as part 3 of the 3-Part Swarm Prevention series, but you can take just this one if you can't make all three.


Instructor: Jennifer Radtke has been keeping bees in her backyard for 13 years, and has developed the beekeeping education program at the Oasis. She keeps up with her bees’ growth in early spring and splits her hives every year around April 1st (& sometimes a second time at the end of May). Her bees haven’t swarmed in 10+ years, though all her current hives come from swarms she caught.
