Hive Inspection Class 

Join us for a hands-on beekeeping class! This is the second class in Hilary’s beekeeping series and it is designed to get you comfortable working your bees. You will have the opportunity to work the hives we inspect with Hilary’s supervision and guidance. Learn how to properly protect yourself from the bees, how to use a smoker and what to look for when inspecting your hive. 

We will inspect multiple colonies, which gives participants the chance to witness and learn from several unique beekeeping scenarios. One colony may be a brand new swarm, while the other is several years old. One colony may have a brood disease, while the other is especially healthy. We may install a new queen or correct some cross-comb. We’ve even gone on a field trip to catch a swarm in the middle of this class! You never know what situations may arise and for that reason many students choose to and are encouraged to take this class multiple times.

You must complete The Intro to Beekeeping class before attending this class.
