This series of lectures and demonstrations will deal with the nature of beekeeping; the life history, anatomy, and social behaviour of bees; economics; how to manage colonies of bees; equipment and site selection; pollen and nectar producing plants, nectar flows; seasonal management ; pests, parasites diseases and their control; regulations; honey houses; extracting equipment; grading and marketing honey and beeswax.

The University reserves the right to cancel any course and refund full fee, and to reschedule classes cancelled due to unavoidable circumstances.
