In this workshop we will not only look at what needs to be done in the fall in order to let the colonies go into the winter as strong and healthy as possible, but we will also take a look at the winter and early spring months, probably the most difficult and treacherous time of the year for the bees. We will take a closer look at the various illnesses and probable causes, as well as share our methods of hive feeding, wrapping, and consolidation for best possible over-wintering success. This is the fourth class in our four-part series on basic beekeeping.

Since the very beginning, Spikenard has not only worked with traditional hive types, but has designed and worked with hives that support the vitality and health of the honeybee by utilizing natural materials with high insulation value and forms that approach roundness.  We have been working on a round hive design, with the aim to pair the emphasis on honeybee health with optimum work-ability, allowing for the most beneficial relationship to develop between bee and beekeeper. In this workshop we will present our results and teach how to prepare the special paste needed to build this type of hive.
