Quest Speaker Tucka Saville
“Long Live the Queen: tips and tricks.” Its all about queen handling, introduction and other practicalities around Queens.
June 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
“Bzz! I run about 300 colonies in Upstate NY and South Florida. My business, Tucka Bee LLC, sprung from 100 swarm traps in the south. My primary mentors are Mike Palmer in upstate Vermont and Sam Comfort, creator of the Comfort Hive. I raise about 500-1000 queens per year and also produce a bit of honey and wax. I enjoy standing in swarms, swimming in rivers, and long days queen-catching while my pup lounges in the sun. It’s a pirate’s life with bees! Zzb.”
