Swarm control with Jim Sansom

At the Woodend Bee-Friendly Society meeting on Sunday 20th September, 3-4.30pm, at Woodend Neighbourhood House, Jim Sansom will be conducting a session on Swarm Control. We are gradually moving into swarm season so this will be an immensely useful session covering:

why bees swarm
how to create conditions in your colony to promote or discourage swarming
how to create an artificial swarm
tips on capturing a swarm

Please bring a plate and $5.

One thought on “Swarm control with Jim Sansom

  1. Hi,

    I’m new to beekeeping and would like to get started this year. I’ve got my hive set up here in Woodend and am trying to capture a swarm. When do you expect bees to start swarming this year in Woodend?

    Thanks – Tony.
