Training & ManagementIf you are a beginner or just short on time I can provide a hive management programme for one or many hives. Ideally new beekeepers will involve themselves with this programme and use it as a hands-on learning experience.
Onsite Management and Training
This management service is tailored to your needs and circumstances and can cover all aspects of your hive management requirements including regular hive-health inspections checking for pests, disease and queen vigour.
There is also the option of conducting swarm reduction management and splitting of hives, re-queening, honey flow management right through to extraction, bottling and labelling of products.
I am also able to provide hands-on training and management in relation to your Flow™ Hive and or standard Langstroth hives.
This is an ongoing management service which is charged at $66/hour. Please also view our One-off Visit or Emergency Call-out Service.
