Hive Inspection

Saturday | March 07, 2020 | 11:00 am — 1:30 pm

Backyard hive in Berkeley/North Oakland | CA

Learn how to do a thorough inspection of your beehive! We will cover all the tools and how to use them correctly. We will go into a hive and show what everything looks like: eggs, larvae, capped worker/drone brood, and uncapped & capped honey. You’ll learn how to assess if your hive is the right size for the amount of bees and if you have a fertile, laying queen. Perhaps most important, you will learn what not to do, as it riles the bees, and instead how to keep them calm and mellow. Rainy or cold weather will postpone this class.   If you are a new beekeeper, we recommend you take this class along with the Intro to Backyard Beekeeping and the Year Round Varroa Mite Mgmt classes
