Join us for a "Spring Clean" workshop-  a 1.5 hour workshop tailored for the beekeeper with overwintered colonies preparing for their first inspection of the season! As the temperatures rise and flowers begin to bloom, it's important to take a peek at your hives, but what are we looking for?

The ‘Spring Clean’ inspection is an in-hive workshop located at our apiary here at Home Grown Bee on April 20th, 2:30-4:00pm. The workshop will go over:

A Routine Hive Inspection:

  • Evaluating the status of your overwintered queen
  • Examining for brood 
  • Identifying and addressing any signs of disease or pests.

Swarm Prevention Strategies:

  • Recognizing early signs of swarm behaviour.
  • Implementing swarm prevention techniques.
  • Splitting colonies if necessary.

Feeding and Supplementing:

  • Determining if supplemental feeding is required.
  • Providing pollen substitutes and sugar syrup if needed.

Hive Maintenance and Upkeep:

  • Cleaning and sanitizing hive components.
  • Repairing or replacing damaged equipment.

Q&A: I will leave time towards the end of the workshop for any questions!  

What to bring:

  • Protective gear (veil, beekeeping jacket/suit, gloves)
  • Water
  • Notepad.

*Our bee store will be open if you need to grab any products or protective gear!
