We'll have an emphasis on identifying a healthy hive and brood, and identification and appropriate action for diseases. It's a great skill refresher and brain-wake up after winter, and perfect timing to get us thinking as we work hives through the spring build up. Bring: Your lunch and a drink. CLEAN beekeeping suit. (a few loan suits available for newbeeks) Enthusiasm. Frames for disease identification if you have any - MUST BE WELL
