Queen Rearing

Thank you to all those who recently attended the Stafford Bee Group winter lecture on queen rearing.

I’m sure all those who attended will agree that Trevor, Jan and Dave did a fantastic job standing up in front of everyone to present their methods and talked through their experiences in queen rearing.

If you’d like to know more, or missed the lecture, Trevor and Jan have kindly shared their presentations. They have been added to the Resources Page for you, where you can find more information about queen rearing.
