Join Massachusetts state Beekeeper Ken Warchol for an in-depth lecture on spring management of honey bee hives. This lecture will focus on how to manage spring hive population build-up, feeding, dividing, pest monitoring and protection and most importantly how to prevent swarming. For beekeepers this program will provide critical information and most especially timing of important management techniques to get the honey season off to a positive start. Following this class, participants are welcome to stay to meet and discuss beekeeping with others.
Ken Warchol is a 6th generation beekeeper and former teacher whose lectures are enjoyed by expert and novice beekeepers alike. He has previously served as a Massachusetts State Bee Inspector.
