If you're interested in learning how to keep bees, or already know how to and would just like to brush up, the NYCBMG classes are a fantastic resource are totally worth the two hours out of your busy schedule. Plus, the price is right!
Tonights lecture topic:
"OK, I've got 70,000 stinging insects in a box - now what do I do?"
So far, we've covered the life of a typical worker bee, we've looked at bee anatomy and physiology, so the Jan 4th class will address the burning question on everyone's mind - management. We will break down the goals of the prudent beekeeper into seasonal chunks, and summarize the choices and options open to the dogma-free beekeeping practice.
Much will be made of the massive difference between managing a hive in its first year (a "package" or "nuc") versus a hive that overwintered at least one season.
RSVP's are MANDATORY, so if you're interested in attending, join up at www.nycbeekeeping.com and e-mail Liane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
