Queen Rearing Workshop

April 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am 3:00 pm

Do you consider yourself an intermediate to advanced beekeeper, and want to try your hand at raising queen bees? In the morning portion of this class we will cover different methods and techniques for raising queen bees, including methods to split a hive, breeding programs, and an intro to grafting. In the afternoon we will head up to the hives at the Cabrillo Horticulture Center for a demonstration of basic grafting.

Beekeepers will leave with a more intimate knowledge of queen bee biology and development, and information about techniques to harvest and incubate queen cells.
