Venue: Via ZOOM
Organised by Daniel Basterfield
Queen raising is a straightforward and rewarding part of beekeeping, yet many beekeepers fear it is too complicated. It can be undertaken on any scale, with varying levels of complexity, but the basics are well known and it can be started with minimal equipment. We will explore the how? and why? of queen raising, compare the various approaches and equipment used, and consider what is realistic and achievable for a hobbyist beekeeper or beekeeping association.
For those who have tried it or want to, it is also a chance to ask any questions you may have.
We will circulate the Zoom link to members nearer the time.
