Bees are your best teachers and the best way to learn is to get your head in as many hives as possible. Honey Bee Ware’s field days are completely hands-on with our production colonies and focused on:
- seasonal hive management
- honey bee biology
- beekeeper etiquette
- pests and disease management
- smoker proficiency
Each field day focuses on seasonal management topics.
May-Honey bee health and spring build up
June- Preparing for a honey flow
August- Harvesting honey and Varroa monitoring
September- Preparing colonies for winter
Our beekeeping classes are held 2-3 times a year in the winter or early spring. These classes are classroom based and focus heavily on honey bee biology and management. Our goal is to help you understand the WHY of the management rather than just telling you how we do it.
Once you start learning about beekeeping and talking to beekeepers, you’ll quickly find that there are many ways to get to the same end and most beekeepers believe their way is the best! We are here to help you understand why bees are managed as they are and help you find that works best for you.
We know bees and bee equipment. We rely on talented people from our community to know about other things. If you have an idea for a workshop you are interested in holding, please contact us to make it a reality!
