Workshop Session: Friday III

Beekeepers have struggled in recent years to keep their hives alive through winter. By focusing on factors you can control, you can set up your bees for wintering success. We’ll cover organic management techniques to control mites, queen stock selection, integrated pest management, and the equipment you’ll need.
