For the past few months, Alberta-based apiary and beekeeper training program ABC Bees and its owner Eliese Watson have been offering aspiring beekeepers from across the globe a series of free downloadable mini courses that have covered beekeeping fundamentals like how to conduct a colony inspection and understanding nectar and pollen flows. 

This month, the pioneers in urban beekeeping are offering a new course that will break down everything a beekeeper needs to know about queen bees, from how to cage queens to how to spot the differences in pupal cells in honey bee castes, and more.  

Upon registering for the course, participants will be provided with a printable toolkit and an accompanying instructional video to help solidify their understanding of the ideas presented.
