Beekeeping—Queen Rearing (2 Hours)

Basic Beekeeping is required before taking this class. Sustainable beekeeping requires the beekeeper to produce queens for future colony expansions and current queen replacement needs. The student will learn how the colony manages their queen and her future replacements and how the beekeeper can implement that knowledge into producing locally raised queens for colony increases and sales to other beekeepers.
