Grow Your Own Colonies!
Saturday, April 29, 2023 @ 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Club member Greg Mau is hosting a free event this Saturday to learn how to grow your own queen cells.
“If you are want/need to learn how to handle and/or utilize queen cells to make queens, I will host a get together this Sat at my place in Fremont. The goal would be for you to learn what it takes to put a Mating NUC together on Sat, to put one (or more) together yourself at home Sun, and to pickup your cell(s) and seed your NUC(s) on Mon. If successful, you will have a mated queen (or queens) by the end of May. Please call or text if you want to reserve a space on Sat… and remember to bring a bee suit as we’ll also be going through a few previously seeded NUCs to check for queen and/or queen signs.”
