About the Event

Taught by Tara and Jeff Hahn from Hahn's Honeybee Haven. The Hahn's have a tried and tested winterization method developed over many years of bee keeping here in Western New York. We all know that winters here can be cold and long, so having a strong winterization method to protect your colonies and give them the best possible chance is essential. The Hahns will be covering the following topics in this interactive class:

  • Fall, winter, and early spring feeding and proper feed ratios and recipes
  • "Right-sizing" your hives for winter to match colony populations
  • Late season mite control
  • Hive wraps and quilt boxes; insulation and increased ventilation to combat moisture issues during our long, harsh winters
  • When it's safe to check on your ladies
  • A temperature and cluster guide
  • Q & A session for any questions you may have

*** Hahn's Honeybee Haven is made up of 8 small apiaries in Niagara County and owned by Tara Hahn, who is the NY State Delegate of the American Beekeeping Federation. The Hahn's work with timber management companies, parks and forestry departments and exterminators.  All of their bees are local rescues or swarm recoveries.
