Grow Your Apiary with Splits and Swarms
May 9, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM| $55.00
With Bill Day
Get off the package treadmill! In the spring, any healthy hive can be made into two. This workshop will show how anyone who has hives can propagate them by making splits and catching swarms.
Weather permitting, much of this half-day workshop will take place in the apiary of the Pfeiffer Center garden, where the techniques we discuss will be demonstrated.
You will leave this workshop with the skills and knowledge needed to make a split and catch a swarm.
Bill Day has been keeping bees for fifteen years. He is the beekeeper and beekeeping instructor at the Pfeiffer Center, and also keeps bees at Bluefield Farm in Blauvelt, NY.
