Swarm Prevention Workshop
Sunday | February 23, 2020 | 9:30 am — 12:00 pm
Sticky Art Lab | 1682 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94703
The East Bay has a particularly long swarm season. Swarm prevention begins in February and continues through June. Be prepared! This class shows you how to keep ahead of your bees’s expansion and keep their broodnest open, so they don’t swarm. We’ll dive into bee biology and the natural urge for the bees to reproduce (swarm). This class will touch upon organizing your hive (e.g. where to move frames so they get the honey capped quickly, so you don’t have a multitude of uncapped honey). Lastly, we’ll cover how to catch a swarm.Visit Event Website >>
