Swarming into Action: Understanding and Controlling Bee Swarms.

Attention all beekeeping enthusiasts! We are thrilled to announce an upcoming talk that’s sure to create a buzz: “Swarming into Action: Understanding and Controlling Bee Swarms.”

Join us as we dive into the fascinating world of honey bees and their swarming behavior, a critical aspect of their natural life cycle and an event of paramount importance for beekeepers.

During this insightful session, we will explore the triggers of swarming, the signs that herald this event, and the most effective strategies for swarm control.

Whether you’re a seasoned apiarist or a budding beekeeper, this talk will equip you with the knowledge to manage your hives proactively and maintain the harmony of your buzzing colonies.

Mark your calendars and prepare to be immersed in the world of apiculture, where you’ll learn not just to anticipate the swarm, but to embrace and guide it.

Fatih Uzuner is a South Shore local beekeeper who has been keeping hives since he was a teenager.  He started with one colony. He soon grew his apiary to many hives in the Black Sea region of Turkey.

He has been in the USA since 2003, keeps many colonies and produces honey, selects and raises local queens and nucs in the South Shore of Massachusetts.
