Learn what happens to honeybees during their “dormant” winter months and what you can do to carry your hives successfully into the next season. You’lllearn how to assess the strength of your colony and determine the appropriate amount of honey stores your hive will need the upcoming winter months, including when and how to provide supplemental feeding. This class will include discussion on the various methods available for protecting your hives from wind and cold, and how each method impacts honeybees. The course will conclude with a review of winter pest management techniques and an off-season “to-do” list for improving your beekeeping knowledge and skills.
Class will be held at The Inn at Hudson Gardens.
Registration: $24/member, $27/nonmember.
