We are an industry leader in Beekeeping Education programs and provide a  wide range of courses and seminars that help our students thrive and grow their apiaries.
 
We know that sometimes things can get challenging and schedules get hectic so all of our programs are offered virtually or in-person and are designed to take the beekeeper from a beginner level through their first year of beekeeping to more advanced practices.
 
Our goal is to give you the knowledge and tools you need to be an effective and productive beekeeper, and most importantly, to protect your investment - your bees!

Personalized Integrated Pest Management Programs // 02
Integrated pest management (IPM) takes a holistic approach to honeybee pest and disease management using multiple techniques and management strategies that are tailored to the environmental and geographical needs of the hive location, all designed to reduce pests and diseases to a manageable level.  Prevention before treatment is key to successful IPM plans.  IPM plans are very specific to your hives and your focus in beekeeping, and as such, the one size fits all does not apply to IPM planning.
 
 
For more information on creating an IPM plan for your apiary, we are ready to assist!
