Fight the Mite
These are two hour classes and will be taught at my house in S. Boulder. The class size limit is 15 students. The cost will be $40/class. To register, just email me. If there are fewer than 4 students registered, then the class may be cancelled. If you have questions, feel free to contact me.
SPECIAL OFFER! If you are within a 2 mile flight radius of my bees (see map below), you can attend for FREE! This is how concerned I am about varroa's effect on honey bee health and the importance of a neighborhood approach to managing it! Please let me know if you're coming.
Before you can keep bees (alive) you have to have a varroa management plan! The varroa/virus complex is the #1 cause of colony death!
