Re: How to make Overwintering Nucs Workshop - June 16
This workshop is designed to teach participants how to make their own summer nucs from their existing colonies. Summer nucs can be a key component to sustainable apiary management. We will teach about making and caring for summer nucs, and then demonstrate how to make the nucs. Participants then receive a divided hive body and two MP queens with which they can make their own nucs back in their home apiaries.
Looking forward to seeing you then...
