Spring Inspection and Management Workshop

Massaro Community Farm

With the winter weather behind us it is time to make a plan for inspecting the beehive. Observational beekeeping is our method. Mild temperatures get the honey bees moving and therefore the beekeeper approaches the hive with a checklist. The workshop will cover questions like: are the bees alive, do you see or hear the cluster, do they have food, do they need a quick fix to carry the bees, what do the frames look like, did you see the queen, or evidence that the queen is laying? Is there a plan to clean off the bottom board?
