"Demarree – More Than Swarm Control”

Jim Pearson

Jim is a Master Beekeeper and a member of Wakefield and Pontefract Beekeepers. He is known for his straight talking and down to earth approach to all things beekeeping. His talk promises to be light hearted and full of informed content, with something for both beginners and more experienced beekeepers.

In order to allow more members to attend the lecture, Jim has agreed to deliver his talk twice, at 11.15am and 1.00pm.

Due to venue restrictions, tickets are limited, therefore please sign-up at staging.
