Hiving Package Bees: Bobbie Meyzen (BYBA Bee Yard, Easton, 11am)
*** This workshop date is now certain. ***
Bobbie Meyzen will demonstrate how to hive package bees at the BYBA bee yard at Trout Brook Valley, near Aspetuck Orchards Apple Barn. This workshop will provide a hands on opportunity to learn and try the proper techniques for transferring a package of live honeybees into a new hive. It may be a little muddy. Bring a veil. If it’s pouring we’ll do it anyway! Starts at 11am. Contact Bobbie Meyzen at (203) 948-3529 or BobbieHoneyBeekeeper@gmail.com
NOTE: date is tentative, and depends on package bee delivery. Stay tuned for more information – and be in touch with Bobbie.
