Monthly General Meeting
July 19, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Gary Mullen will lead the topic on varroa mites! The varroa mite is a beekeepers biggest concern. 80% of colony failures can be attributed to the varroa mite. When mites are not in check, a variety of issues plague the hive. In this meeting, we'll talk about the ways to monitor for mites (including the alcohol wash) and what to do if you find the levels are above the ideal threshold.
This meeting is a precursor to the field day workshop being held at Dave Rieman's apiary on the following Saturday where we'll conduct live alcohol washes on multiple hives.
Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30pm at Garry's Workshop in Moore's Hill. Open to the public. We'll update the topic here ahead of time. Stop back soon.
