This class is meant for beekeepers with more than 1 year of experience
The decisions you make early in the beekeeping season will set the course for the rest of the year. This class is all about how the decisions you make will impact the development and productivity of your colonies through the rest of the year, and into the following season.
This in depth look at Spring Management will help you make the right decisions, whether your goals are to increase hive numbers, or maintain your existing hive count. We'll go step-by step through the spring build-up period and explain how to make the right decisions to achieve your goals for the season.
