How to do a Hive Inspection
Learn how simple it is to do a thorough hive inspection! Whether you’ve never gone down into your brood boxes before or are a new beekeeper this year, this is a great class to learn what everything looks like in your hive and how to use all the tools properly to least upset the bees (read: not get stung). We will go into a hive and show what everything looks like: eggs, larvae, capped worker/drone brood, capped honey, and pollen. You’ll learn how to assess if your hive is the right size for the amount of bees and if you have a fertile, laying queen. This is a great second class to take (after Backyard Beekeeping) to get real experience with the bees present. Instructor: Jennifer Radtke has been keeping bees in her backyard for 11 years, and has developed the beekeeping education program at the Oasis. She is vice-president of the Alameda Co Beekeeping Association. Cost: $30 Location: a backyard hive in Berkeley/Oaklnd TBA as the class date approaches Register:
$10 off 1hr or 1.5hr massage/acupuncture on M-F before 3pm
