Beekeeping in Northern Climates Beyond the Basics

April 13, 2019, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm UTC-5

$120

This class is exclusively for beekeepers that have had the following three experiences: 1) successfully wintered honey bee colonies in a cold climate; 2) introduced a new queen into an existing colony; 3) kept bees continuously for two years.

In this class we will cover alternative management strategies to successfully winter colonies in northern climates, divide colonies in spring, requeen colonies in spring and/or fall, and maintain colonies on natural comb. We will not cover honey harvesting and extraction, or the basics of wintering colonies as these topics are covered in Beekeeping Part 2.

Beekeeping workshops regularly sell out – register early!
Registration closes 8am Monday before class.

Fee includes morning and afternoon coffee breaks, lunch and all course materials.

Instructors:

  • Marla Spivak, Professor, Department of Entomology, University of Minnesota
  • Gary Reuter, Scientist, Department of Entomology, University of Minnesota
