This five-hour class is split into two sessions and will cover swarming in depth. We will discuss the different types of swarms, swarm biology and behavior, and how to manage the swarming impulses in your colonies. We will also cover swarm trap building and use, swarm management and prevention, and swarm collecting.
This class focuses on understanding the natural causes and benefits of swarming, and encourages participants to embrace and utilize the natural reproductive instincts of colonies to improve colony health and apiary success.
