New Packages, Nucs, and Spring Management
10am and Noon

The original focus of our workshop, new package installations, has changed.
The mild winter allowed all of the hives to survive. Thus, we are not installing any new packages. We know installing new packages can be a daunting process for new beekeepers. To help familiarize new beekeepers with the process, we will perform a ‘dry package’ install simulating all the steps of setting up a new hive.
Following the dry-package installation we will perform spring hive management and inspection on several hives. From the strongest we will create a ‘nuc’. Then we will perform a ‘sugar roll’ and dusting with powdered sugar. Both demonstrations will be of great interest to new and experienced beekeepers alike.
All workshops are hands-on and run by the CT Beekeepers Association at the Massaro Community Farm, 41 Ford Road, Woodbridge CT
FREE to the public
Each workshop is split into two identical sessions at 10am and Noon
Each session is limited to 20 participants on a first-come first-served basis
