SPRING CLEAN

 

MARCH 30TH 3-5 pm

 

This is the start of the season we will be changing the floors on all the hives and checking the colonies, removing old frames and replacing with foundation as well as doing a shook swarm providing the weather allows so bring your bee suits. Feel free to come along a bit early as there is always frames that need making up.

 

Please note that the June and July meetings have traded places and so now the bee inspector will be coming in July and our Quiz and Auction will be in June.† If you have anything for the Auction donít forget to bring it along then also the bee inspector is an unknown at the moment as the post is† yet to be filled.
