We will present the various options available in the types of beehives and the advantages and
disadvantages of each.
We will also talk about how to examine colonies. Emphasis will be on determining the status of the
colony and what it needs.
We will talk about what a good brood pattern looks like and how to check whether colonies need to be fed
or need to be given extra supers for storing surplus honey.

and will talk about what to expect and what needs to be done during each season of the beekeeping year.
