Course Description

When you raise your own queens, you are able to select the colony traits that are important to you and produce queens adapted to your environment. Use your queens to establish nucs to be used to increase or to replace failing queens. Learn the basics of queen rearing from a Master Beekeeper. This 2-day course will include lectures to assure you understand the "why" behind queen rearing as well as hands on experience. You will practice grafting larvae and will learn the Cloake board method of queen rearing, ideal for raising a few queens.
