The Federation of Irish Beekeepers Associations FIBKA

Ten Fortnightly Beekeeping Webinars, Starts June 9th

Dear all,

I hope you are keeping well in these interesting times. I’m looking to publicise our series of webinars that start next Tuesday evening, and would be grateful if you could please forward this around any of your contacts whom you think may be interested.

We are offering a series of on-line evening lectures throughout the rest of the beekeeping season, starting on 9th June. Topics are chosen to fit with the work in the apiary, aiming to be timely and thought-provoking to inspire all those ‘thinking beekeepers’ out there. Titles currently scheduled are:

Vertical Split Swarm ControlQueen Raising Overview
The Importance of DronesReading Bees
Queenright and Broodright?Preparations for a Better Season?
Double Brood Chamber WorkingBees for Honey and Money
Tools and Tricks…Wax Processing

Ken and Dan Basterfield regularly give popular lectures on practical and though-provoking beekeeping topics. They lecture across the UK and Ireland, from local association meetings to national and international conferences.

The full programme, webinar details, and booking links can be found at

These are public webinars open for anyone to sign up to; we would also be happy to discuss running these titles or others specifically for your Association members.
