Winter Beekeeping – Learn how to prepare your bees for winter
September 5, 2015 : 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$65
Sept 5 at Spikenard
Join Gunther Hauk and Alex Tuchman of Spikenard Farm Honeybee Sanctuary. In this workshop we will not only look at what needs to be done in the fall in order to let the colonies go into the winter as strong and healthy as possible, but we will also take a look at the winter and early spring months, probably the most difficult and treacherous time of the year for the bees. We will take a closer look at the various illnesses and probable causes above and beyond bacteria, viruses and fungi.
