This 1-day intensive course quickly reviews all the information provided in the Basic course (offered in March). This course is for experienced beekeepers wanting to learn the Horizontal 2 Queen system and for people that have already taken the Basics course and need a refresher. The main focus will be on wintering your colonies and on making divides in spring to prevent swarming. We will also give the latest updates on disease and mite management and control, emphasizing a reduction in chemical use within bee hives. All questions will be answered.
