September Meeting on the First Tuesday Sept. 2nd

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - 7:00pm

Due to the Labor Day Holiday our monthly meeting has been moved to Tuesday September 2nd. David Westervelt will be our guest speaker. Dave carries so many tittles and accolades in the bee world it’s hard to list them all. Having founded his own commercial apiary in Florida after working bees in Germany, Austria, Spain, France, Peru, and Costa Rica, Dave became an FDACS Bee Inspector/ environmental specialist/researcher & protector specialist.

August Meeting recap

Forums:

2 Short films on varroa mites and their affects on honeybees were shown. Bo showed us how to perform a “sugar roll” to check for varroa mites. Open discussion was lead by Bo Sterk on summer beekeeping. Question & answers followed. Time to take off excluders, feed a 1-1 solution (or weaker) if bees have no stores, time to make splits, keep watch for beetles, wax moths and varroa.
