Thanks Bec, this was a great course and I feel much more confident in packing down my hives for the winter. looking forward to many more of your online courses and valuable tips.
I found the course showed me what I need to do for each step in the pack down process, very clear, and left me avenues for help if I need more
As a newbie going into my second year with a strong hive of 3 boxes high, I was stressing about how to pack the hive down. This course was absolutely timely and provided me with the skills, knowledge and answers on how to successfully do this
Excellent course for a newbee! Great to see multiple visual examples of what to do with various hive presentations at end of season to know how to approach pack down.
Thanks, Bec! You put alot of effort into making this course for us and it is much appreciated!
