We had a great turnout for our September apiary workshop. We covered mite count, mite treatments, feeding, weighing hives, and reviewed best practices. Special thanks to Howard Hall and Scott Wilson for hosting.

Here are some photos from the apiary workshop:

Photos from Our April Beekeeping Workshop

We had a great April beekeeping workshop hosted by Scott Wilson. In the workshop we covered unpacking hives, feeding, equalizing, winter kill diagnosis, and as always review of best practices. We unpacked some very strong overwintered colonies as well as diagnosing a weaker colony. Thanks for the excellent turnout. Here are a few photos from the workshop yesterday, you can find more photos from Vermont beekeepers on the Addison County Beekeepers Association facebook page.
