2nd May 2020 – 3rd May 2020 all-day UTC Timezone
Leamington Branch Training Apiary
King's Hill Ln
Coventry CV3 6PS

Due to restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 virus, the apiary will not be available during the lockdown period and the colonies therefore cannot be prepared.

Consequently, the event has now been cancelled.

This hands on introductory course will cover queen rearing methods suitable for those preparing for their General Husbandry Assessment or for those who wish to produce a few spare queens for their own apiary. The workshop, led by 3 GH assessors, will include stock selection, setting up cell raiser colonies, larval introduction using ‘Miller’ frames and grafted cell bars, setting up mating nucs and queen introduction. Materials will be provided. Delegates to provide own lunches and clean bee suits etc.
