Monthly General Meeting
January 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
David Hocutt will be joining us to talk about "checkerboarding," a management technique to prevent swarming. We've used the term checkerboarding in our club in the past to talk about alternating brood frames and foundation frames. The bees have a tendency to want to reconnect the brood chamber by filling the frames in between with eggs. David will talk about checkerboarding as a means to prevent the bees from swarming by creating the illusion they have plenty more space in the hive. Join us!
