NCSU Apiculture BEES Academy – October 2nd & 3rd

Do you want to increase your understanding of bees and improve your practices? Do you feel like you might need a “booster shot” to update what you learned in your beginner bee school? Wish there was an opportunity to reinforce your experience to maximize your beekeeping success?

If you answered yes, set aside two full days and immerse yourself in theoretical and practical aspects of beekeeping at the BEES Academy. During live and pre-taped video from the Beekeeper Education & Engagement System (BEES), Dr. David Tarpy, other members of the NC State Apiculture Program, and CES instructors will help you build upon your current knowledge of beekeeping by exploring topics such as:

  • Honey Bee Anatomy
  • Division of labor & bee behavior 
  • Queens, drones, and mating
  • Diseases, parasites, and disorders 
  • Varroa Integrated Pest Management 
  • Advanced management techniques
  • Effects of pesticides 
  • Honey and other hive products
