Advance Beekeeping

  • Impact Center, 1st Baptist Church of Pipe Creek 454 Farm to Market Road 1283 Pipe Creek, TX, 78063 United States (map)

A “must attend” seven hour class for beekeepers who have done at least one season in beekeeping. We explore topics from “reading” your frames, manipulating your frames for increasing honey production, swarm management, varroa mite counts & treatments, making splits/merging colonies to queen management basics: queenlessness, re-queening, “hot” hives. We will be out in the bee yard for a lot of this class in addition to class time doing some of the actual topics we discussed.

Class is limited in size to 10 students to ensure a quality experience. Bring a brown bag lunch (microwave available). We will provide the water and sweet tea.

Cost is $90/person. A visit to the bee yard with “hands on” in our hives weather permitting is included.
