Queen Rearing 2 day Workshop 9th & 10th March 2019

This workshop includes 2 days of instruction from expert beekeepers featuring Bruce White. Attendees will have the opportunity to handle live bees, and undertake a practical application of Queen Bee grafting. The 2 days will allow participants to graft a queen larva on day 1 and follow up on day 2 to see how well their grafts have taken, prepare a starter hive for cell rearing, graft a queen larva, raise the cells and make up a mating nucleus hive. This workshop is limited to 15 places, so book fast.

Your Safety is Our Priority

Specialised bee protective clothing is available for loan at the event. However, for your own safety you will need to wear a long sleeve shirt (lightweight if a hot day), long pants tucked into socks and covered shoes. Do not wear perfumes, scented lotions, shampoos etc. on the day as these annoy bees. Beehives in the apiary will be opened during the event if weather permits. If the weather is poor, beehives will be opened in a  covered area available on site. You must read, understand and agree with our Working with Bees (Acknowledgement of Risk) document here.
