Richard Reid will present a program that consists of seven short videos by Mike Palmer. The videos include – Identifying Queenless Colonies, Catching a Hive before it Swarms, Importance of Local Queens, Inspecting a Hive, Opinion on Package Bees, Queens Have Handles, and Queen Marking. Each video is taken in the beeyard, and usually as he works the bees. There are lots of practical nuggets of info embedded in his talks.
We’ll also have our monthly equipment raffle, information on what we should be seeing in our hives this month, and suggested management techniques for the summer.
Please consider bringing a snack or drink to share.
