Double Brood - Show and Tell
Following on from our popular Double Brood Chamber Working webinar in the 2020 series, and the many questions and discussions which that prompted, this session will expand on the management themes with additional video, photos and discussion of both the transition from single brood to double brood, and the management of double brood colonies.
About Ken Basterfield, NDB
Ken was first introduced to bees at 6 years old, but began beekeeping upon graduating in 1971. He increased in numbers until running 150 colonies by 1979, running these as a semi-commercial outfit in parallel with his day job.
Ken took his BBKA Preliminary, Intermediate, Senior, and Senior Practical certificates, before obtaining his National Diploma in Beekeeping (NDB) in 1996. During that time, he completed a wide range of beekeeping including stock selection and breeding from the best locally-adapted performers & extensive queen raising.
Ken has tried out most of the management techniques on large scale trials leading to ‘best fit’ tools and techniques for his own beekeeping environment.
