If you have basic beekeeping knowledge and want to upgrade your beekeeping skill level, then this workshop is designed for you. Through presentations, discussion, hands-on activities, and field inspection of La Casa’s beehives, we will address bee management strategies, including swarm prevention, splits, overwintering hives, pest and disease identification, treatment, and prevention, and other tricks of the trade so you can identify your colony’s needs and have the skills for building a sustainable apiary. Please bring your own protective gear, if available.
Paul Cronshaw, president of the Santa Barbara Beekeeper’s Association, and manager of La Casa’s apiary, will share his 40+ years as an apiculturist in Santa Barbara County.
Co-sponsored with the Santa Barbara Beekeepers Association.
