About The Event
Keith Pierce, well known Irish beekeeper, will give a talk on 'Apideas: Their Operation and Maintenance'
'To be able to keep ahead of your beekeeping problems, each beekeeper should ideally operate a percentage of mini mating nucs, according to the amount of honey producing hives that they keep. The aim is to always have a surplus of spare queens, to stay ahead of the needs of the bees. It should help you to fix most of the beekeeping problems that will arise during your beekeeping year and help to increase productivity.
Because of their small size, Apideas are prone to certain problems. Over the years I have greatly improved my success rate in getting queens mated and introduced into full hives. This presentation will tell you how I do it.'
