Queen Rearing

Queen Rearing Course

We only run one or two courses every year.
so they tend to get booked up very quickly!

Our one day beginners Queen rearing course cover every thing you need to know to raise a few or a few hundred Queens a season. It is very hands on so a bee suit is essential.

We will cover grafting, Setting up starter hives & finishers, Mating Nucs. Queen banking and the alternatives like using a cloake board to start queen cells and finish them using only one hive.

Lunch and all refreshments are included in the course fees as well as a starter kit to get you going. When booking you pay only a £10 deposit and the balance on the day of the course or 7 days before by bank transfer.
you can also combine this course with our Instrumental Insemination course if you wish but again places are in high demand.
