Hiving Package Bees & 1st Inspection
This workshop will NOT be held, due to Coronavirus restrictions on gatherings.
We are working on an alternative to hands-on workshops, so please stay tuned for more information. Thank you.
Location: BYBA Bee Yard, Easton, CT
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
