Hiving Package Bees & 1st Inspection

Hiving Package Bees & 1st Inspection

April 5, 2020

Location: BYBA Bee Yard, Easton, CT
Time: 11:00am

Ellen Zampino 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 proper techniques for transferring a package of live honeybees into a new hive.

We also plan to check a hive of bees where a package was installed a week prior, so you can also see how to do the 1st inspection a week after installation.

It may be a little muddy. Bring a veil. If it’s pouring we’ll do it anyway!  Starts at 11am. Contact Ellen at (203) 981-0611 or
