The benefits of raising your own queen include: having queens adapted to your environment, avoiding southern queens that may have mated with Africanized drones, and establishing your own nucleus colonies. Designed for the experienced beekeeper, this course will include the basics of queen rearing, grafting larvae, and using the Mike Palmer method of queen rearing. You will have the option of taking your queen cells home. Prerequisites: Attendees must have some beekeeping experience.
