Are you curious about how queens are produced or thinking about raising queens yourself? This class is a perfect starting point for you! While there will be no ‘hands-on’ training or practice, this class will go through the whole queen rearing and production process step-by-step from start to finish. It will cover everything from selecting and evaluating colonies, to making and managing ‘cell-builders’ to produce the queens, to the grafting process, to setting up and managing mating nucs. This would be a great class to prepare you for the practical queen rearing workshop that will be offered later in the year.
Suggested for people with at least 1-2 years of experience.
Date: Saturday, April 6
