So you came away from the 6/15 Intro to Beekeeping course convinced.  But beekeeping isn’t all roses and honey.  In this class, Dan Carr of Stone Barns will take the sting out of potential challenges.  Learn about swarms and how not to raise the rancor of neighbors (and the NYPD) when swarm season arrives.  Walk away prepared to prevent, recapture and hive swarms, turning a potential conflict with your landlord into a windfall of healthy, thriving bees.  From small hive beetles and wax moths to mice and nasty, dangerous interloper bees, be prepared to protect and fight for your hive.  This event will take place rain or shine.  For more information and to register, visit http://bldg92.org/events/**Please do not sign up for this workshop if you have a bee allergy**
