The world is an unsettled place. Invest in gold. So you got the equipment, found some bees, and nurtured and watched them all summer. Now how do you get your hands on that liquid gold, and how do you keep the bees alive for another year? This course will explain the steps beekeepers need to take in the fall.

How to get the honey away from the bees

Equipment you will need to extract honey

How to use the equipment

What to do with the wax

How to clean up the honey

What the bees are doing in the fall

What the bees are doing in the winter

How to help the bees get ready for winter

How to help the bees survive over winter

And everything else you need to know to finish your first year of beekeeping
