Every spring, many of us line up to buy packages of living bees from SFBA or some other source. But how are those packages created? And what's the best way to use them to start a new hive or juice up a failing one? Author, beekeeper and former apicultural entomologist at Ohio State University Larry Connor has written several books on such topics, many published under his own Wicwas Press label. In this session, he'll explain how to get the most out of the queens, bee packs or nucs that you purchase this year and answer any questions you may have.
