Hey there Beekeepers!
Would you like to see a master beekeeper or an experienced beekeeper inspect a hive?
Would you like to hear what they are seeing, how they are managing, and why?
Come to our next open hive session at Christine Ingwersen’s house in Arundel on SUNDAY July 14th
We usually start gathering about 10am with a little social time and plan to start the session at 10.30.
If you want to see the full Schedule, check out the “Open Hives” tab
Everyone that has bees wants to be as well informed and educated as possible. Bee school will help you get to that next level. It doesn’t matter if your just starting out or have had bees for some time. Everyone needs to learn how to manage their hives so they don’t swarm, stay productive and stay healthy.

Problems with the hive as it relates to queens
Her talk to the club would be a bit like this:
1. How to tell you have a queen verses a laying worker or no queen.
2. How to requeen, introduce a queen to a queenless hive, should you have attendants in her cage or not,
3. Different types of queen cages and how to insert them,
4. Should you mark your queen, clip her wings, or do nothing ?
5. How to find the queen. Is it important to see her or just see evidence of her?
6. Inserting queen cells, using a queen catcher,
7. Different races of queens.
