It’s All About the Drones

May 4 @ 9:00 AM 4:00 PM

On Saturday May 4th, Julia Mahood of Map My DCA and Melanie Kirby of Zia Queen Bees, (collaborators in the Adaptive Bee Breeders Alliance) will be traveling to Santa Cruz to teach a one-day workshop all about DRONES!

Drone honey bees can get a bad wrap from beekeepers, but they are essential for any healthy apiary and queen rearing operation. We will learn all about how to find and maintain healthy drones in our apiaries and conclude the day by utilizing mechanical drones (UAVs) to find drone honey bees in local drone bars (DCAs). 

This unique offering is a one-time event and is not to be missed! The class is on Saturday, May 4th from 9-4pm at the German Cultural Center + local apiary visit to fly the drone & hopefully get in some hives. Here is the link to register.
