Course Description 

Course topics will include: Bee biology; starting a hive - packages and nucs; hive management and nutrition; honey bee pests, diseases, and treatments; reading a frame; and harvesting honey.

Who should attend: First-year beekeepers and people that have previously taken a beginning beekeeping course, but don't have their bees yet and would like a review. This information will build confidence and help you prepare before the start of the spring beekeeping season.

This course is not for someone that has never taken a beginning course. Those folks should sign up for the Rutgers Bee-ginners' Beekeeping course at:

Note: Due to the time of year, this course will not be opening active hives or working with live bees.
