Beekeeping in Northern Climates

Interested in becoming a beekeeper? Dr. Marla Spivak, Dr. Katie Lee and Gary Reuter from the University of Minnesota Bee Lab will help you get started in beekeeping. If you have no prior experience keeping bees in our cold climate, Beekeeping in Northern Climates Online will teach you everything you need to know. The course modules cover honey bee biology, management, successful wintering of colonies, managing diseases and pests and so much more. If your goal is to keep your bees alive and healthy year after year, this engaging course is for you.

This on-line course replaces in-person courses (Beekeeping in Northern Climates Year 1 and Year 2).  In-person classes will resume again when safe. Students seeking Year 2 are encouraged to sign up for the on-line course as new and improved content has been added.
