Meet the Bees
Course Leader – Mike I’Anson
Don a bee suit and delve into the hives here at Helmsley Walled Garden. Each course starts at 4pm and lasts two hours.
There will be a short talk on the bees, their life cycle and what the queen, workers and drones do. Course participants will then get into the bee suits provided and look inside the hives, assisting Mike in whatever work is needed. Tasks will include examining for pests and diseases, checking for signs of swarming and swarm prevention, adding extra frames and supers to allow the colony to grow in size and store honey and checking the honey store.
This course is a great introduction to bees and their lives. The maximum number of participants per course is 4.
