MOFGA offers this evening course with certified Master Beekeeper Karen Thurlow. This class will be focused on producing, growing, and wintering nucleus hives to replace winter losses in your apiary. Topics will include splitting hives, wintering over nucleus colonies, identifying signs of swarming and acting to prevent it, as well as tips for raising healthy winter bees and a brief discussion on small-scale queen production. This class is aimed at intermediate level beekeepers—those with several seasons under their belt and a familiarity with the tasks of a beekeeper.
