Do you want to learn how to do a rescue of an established colony? I have an old style swarm trap and a clay pot full of bees. I will show you how to safely remove the bees and put them into a hive. My method saves the comb and baby bees. It gives the best chance for a healthy colony. Cost is 2 hrs. of painting or $25. After the class the colonies will be sold for $75 and include a 5 frame wooden nuc box.
We are going to start painting at 10 am. At 1 pm I will show you how to perform a cut out. After the cutout (approximately 2:30) will be an opportunity to help paint again. We will be painting bee equipment and a flat bed trailer.
Please RSVP to let me know if you are coming and if you would like one of these low cost colonies. I may have a few additional colonies available at this low cost, but only to people who attend this class. Please bring bee suits if you have them (if not please let me know to reserve one), painting clothes, water and lunch.
Cutout class 10 am – 4 pm on June 23th @ 4188 Foothill Rd. Carpinteria, Ca 93013
