Part 1: Hive Examination After a New Package or Nuc (novice level) Jo Zeimet, facilitator.
Perfect time to discuss exams after new installation, especially for new beekeepers! We will use the group wisdom to walk through a newly established hive exam, A to Z. Langstroth and top bar. Bring your experience and your questions for Boulder County Beekeepers’ best practices.
Break: Chat, Chew, and Exchange Plants
Please bring something yummy to share with the group. The plant exchange is a 1st time experiment — Please dig up and pot any good pesticide-free plant starts you have around your home to share with other beekeepers. Healthy bees need groceries!
Part 2: How to Read Brood
What’s normal, what’s good, what’s a problem and what to do about it (intermediate and advanced level) Kristina Williams, presenter.
Remember to bring your questions, some snacks, and pot up a few plants to share.
Swarm season has started! If you’re on the list, are you ready?!!
