“Queen Rearing” lectures often confuse beekeepers, so they don’t rear their own queens because they think it is complicated. “Understanding Queen Rearing Methods” will explain what the beekeeper is trying to achieve when using one of the “artificial” methods of queen rearing. All we are doing is to help the bees produce queen cells in a controlled way, that makes it easier for the beekeeper to manage. The presentation will be given in a step-by-step manner that is easy to understand, in the hope that it encourages beekeepers to produce their own queens.
