Event description

Description

Come along and learn about winter hive inspection, In May it's time to prepare the hives for winter. We will evaluate honey stores and make sure our bees have enoug reserves for winter while reducing the size of the hive.

You will learn about differences of Langstroth and Warré hive and flow hive technology, we will also revise basics of brood inspection, disease signs if any, general good beekeeping practices.

If you bring clean gloves you can have the opportunity to manipulate frames.

We will have a snack and a drink at the end of the inspection, this will give you more opportunity to ask questions, exchange your experience, and meet other bee friendly people.

Please register by the Friday beforehand (25th May) so we can work out the numbers for catering and hire gear.

If you are hiring protective gear, please wear closed in shoes and a cap (the cap helps keep the veil off your face).

The event will still be on if it is raining.
