Workshops Where the Rubber meets the Road

We are quickly approaching this years annual convention in Ithaca NY, and the workshops are exciting. The workshops are where we depart from pure theory, analysis, and research and get down to how to implement the results of the research or how others are doing things. We have a number of experienced beekeepers prepared to share what they have found successful in their beekeeping practice.

We have over 40 instructors who are going to show you how to take beekeeping to whatever levels you desire.
Speakers will be showing the gadgets that they have built to make their tasks easier.
Of course we will have the Master Beekeepers in bee yards showing how to do the most basic to the most advanced hive manipulations.
We will troll for drones by trailing queen pheromone, dangling from a helium balloon, to show you how to find a drone congregation area, see how aggressive the drones are within that area, and how quickly they break off the chase as the queen lure exits the boundaries. I found this fascinating the first time I witnessed it.
We will be learning how others are dealing with diseases and other pests plaguing beekeeping today.
We will have professional beekeepers demonstrating their methods and business knowledge for those who
are developing beekeeping as side or second profession. What could be better for a man than to work outside as his own boss, surrounded by swarms of females? What could be better for a woman than to enjoy watching someone else work?
Learn how to implement and maintain your own breeding program.
I hope you enjoy these workshops as much as I am anticipating them. You will have over 10 parallel sessions to choose from. Your biggest problem will be deciding which ones to attend, as they are all so relevant and the speaker list is incredible! See you in Ithaca! Go New York!
