Bee Wellness, Hands on Hive (BYBA Bee Yard)

This will be the first of two Bee Wellness workshops. This is the apiary portion, covering proper hive inspection techniques, identifying unhealthy colonies, specimen collection for in-field testing such as mite sugar rolls, and record keeping.
This workshop will be held at the BYBA queen rearing bee yard at Trout Brook Valley, near Aspetuck Orchards Apple Barn.
Contact Bobbie Meyzen at (203) 948-3529 or BobbieHoneyBeekeeper@gmail.com

  1. Please remember that sign-up is required and that registered participants should plan to attend both workshops. Please email or call Bobbie Meyzen to register (bobbiemey@aol.com or 203-948-3529).
  2. The workshops are limited to adults only with one year and overwintering experience under their belt.
  3. The first workshop is hands on so we will also require protective veils and gloves for each participant to bring with them to the yard. We also recommend bringing a folding chair as seats are limited at the bee yard.
