How to perform a biosecurity inspection & pack down for winter

Around ANZAC Day is the perfect time to conduct one of your biosecurity inspections (as per the Biosecurity Code of Practice). We will run you through how to conduct an inspection, pests and diseases to look out for and then how to prepare your hive for the Winter ahead. Packing down is an important part of preparing your bees for the cold weather. Join us for two hours of hands on small group learning. This is a FREE event.
