Honeybee Colony Management

Honeybees are managed livestock, just like other animals on your homestead or farm; they need to be inspected for health and wellness and managed to prevent swarming. Witness a great way to check the health of the colony by doing a basic hive inspection. It’s important to monitor for the Varroa mite; learn how to do a Varroa mite check by doing an alcohol wash. Monitoring and treating for mites is important to managing healthy, productive colonies. If a colony is successfully managed, it may need to split to prevent swarming. There are many ways to accomplish this. See how to do a basic split. This workshop is sponsored by Mann Lake.
