This will be on a Sunday in May, exact date nearer the time as a successful inspection is weather dependant.
Normal hive inspection.
Making increase - planned and proactive.
Swarming – control and reaction.
Preparing a colony for honey production.
Questions and answers – these are sessions where you can ask the experts and find out the answers to those litle niggles and worries.
The session is free to MBKA members, but please do let us know if you are hoping to attend. Not only is it useful for planning that we know attendance numbers, but courses may get cancelled if there is little or no interest. Contact the apiary manager on 01686 688562 or by e-mail during the fortnight before the meeting to let him know.
See the general notes on the apiary for the "rules of the road".
