Little Creek Bee Ranch

in Ardmore, Ok

Acoustic Beekeeping

"Apivox Auditor" class

(Tuition cost $125 per person, see details below)



We're taking the "show on the road", so to speak. First stop, Ardmore, Oklahoma to teach an Apivox Auditor class. This class is focused on learning "Acoustic Beekeeping" skills, using the Apivox Auditor. Class level is Intermediate to Advanced, but all beekeepers are welcome to attend. As a corporate body of beekeepers in this nation, we suffer from a very low "Bee IQ". As I tell my Apprentices, the Apivox Auditor will truly bare your knowledge about Honey Bees. It will reflect what you "know" or "don't know" about your colony. Powerful, accurate and very worth learning. Our focus here, is teaching Apivox strategies and hopefully raise your "Bee IQ".

What all is covered in this class? How the Apivox Auditor works, strategies in use, how to use Eddy Woods timeline with Apivox. Learning to get out ahead of the Swarming event. How to use Apivox in order to determine if there's a Queen present, or not. How to determine if there's a good egg population, or not. How to determine if the girls are working on Honey, or not. Learn how to read the "Hiss" and "Warble". And much, much more!

If you aren't sure about attending, let me ask you one simple question; How would you like to have a 3 weeks notice that your colony is about to swarm, without even opening the hive?Getting a 3 weeks heads up, gives you plenty of time to make plans and preparations. That alone, is worth learning. If you'd like to learn more about the Apivox Auditor first, before attending, click on this link; Apivox Auditor
