Topics will include the life cycle of honey bees and the colony, the bee yard and bee keeping equipment. This class will discuss bee keepers’ interaction with the hive during the seasons as well as the purpose of swarming, splitting hives and rearing queens. Problems such as CCD (colony collapse disorder) will be explained.
