In this 3hr class, we will work Hands-On in our Natural and Sustainable Apiary with working Top-Bar Hives, Langstroth Hives, Layens Hives, Long Lang's, Warre and Flow Hives.

We will discuss & demonstrate how to quickly and efficiently light a smoker that lasts, inspect all kinds of hives without stressing the colony, "read" frames and evaluate a colony's overall health and nutrition needs, identify pests and pathogens and troubleshoot naturally without the use of chemicals. We will also discuss supplemental feeding and how to prepare your colony for the upcoming honey flow.

Classes take place at our Teaching Apiary on the beautiful grounds of Vista Brewing, 13551 FM 150, Driftwood, TX 78619
