Pictures of National Pollinator Day Celebration

Joan and Kim showed explained life within the observation hive, and the products of the hive. Bo and Bob did a honey extraction demo and invited everyone to taste honey. It was a successful event. June 21,2014

Inspecting hive, Thanks Bo


Bo stopped by yesterday afternoon and helped inspect one of my hives.  It was a first for me.  Not first inspection but first time working the hive in a very loose pair of shorts and tank top and ball cap.  It was very cloudy and looked like it may storm so not an ideal time to go into a hive.

I have nice bees.  A few crawled on my legs but no stings.  Bo caught the queen and carried her to his truck and marked her so she will be easier to spot.

July Meeting recap
