For this program, we will purchase and supply queens from a commercial supplier. Under supervision you will set up a nucleus hive at the club apiary. A corflute nuc and frames of brood from the club hives will be supplied. Over the next weeks we will assist with inspections, monitoring release and laying.
The program will extend over a month requiring weekly weekend apiary visits. On completion you will take the nuc home to install in your own hive.
Due to limited resources this program is available to members only. Our intention is to assist new members who have just completed the beginners course in getting a flying start.
