« Back

Date: Jan 27, 2018

Venue: The Folk Hall, 95 High Street, Portishead, Bristol

Contact: John Banks


Time: 9.00 for 9.30-4.30


Event Details:


An all day event aimed at encouraging all beekeepers to improve their bees.

The purpose is to help all beekeepers to continuously assess their colonies, so they have a good idea of which queens to cull,

and which colonies to take queen cells from when they need new queens.

There will be tuition on how to raise queens using queen cells that bees often present us with during the summer, as well

as some simple “artificial” techniques that may be suitable for the more advanced beekeeper, or those working in groups.
