Beekeeping Class 101 - Class #5: Hive Management and Care of My Honey Bees

Posted by Eva Andrews on

Get ready for Class #5! Join us June 14th (9am-noon) at Bill’s Bees Bee Yard for Class #5 
of the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association Beekeeping Class 101. (Bee Suits Required)

Honey Bee FrameJune bee class is traditionally our class for hunting mites, but every class from now on out will have a segment on testing for mites, monitoring mite levels, and safe mite treatments for honey bees.

We will continue to follow the progress of packages installed in April.

Also, a beekeeper from Long Beach is supposed to be bringing a hive with a problem. We plan to diagnose the problem and fix it.

We may get a chance to take a look at an Africanized hive going through the re-queening process. For those of you who stayed very late last month, you may remember that the queen was introduced in a cage after removing the old queen. We now need to verify that she was accepted 'or not.'

With good mentoring, monitoring, and continued learning of beekeeping skills, you're off to a good start. Enjoy!

Happy Bee-ing!
