So you have bought your first bee hive and just want to have a bit more practice so you are really confident doing the general day to day beehive inspections. They will start the day with a small amount of practical discussion followed by a hands on day opening and inspecting the hives. Hands on activities will the include: disease inspection for biosecurity code of practice; swarm control techniques; splitting hives; preparing nucleus hives; robbing honey; and preparing hives for winter.
