Monthly General Meeting
August 16, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Dr. Mike Bentz will be presenting the topic small hive beetle (SHB) and honey labeling guidelines. Two things that are timely as ever. SHB continues to be a real pest in the hive. As beekeepers bring in their honey, it's important to think about how it is stored until it is slung. In the past, we'd let it air out in the honey house. Now days, honey that is not guarded by bees is subject to the "sliming" of SHB. Will you sling it fast, freeze it, or something else? Mitigation of SHB in the hive is typically a multi-pronged approach. Let's talk about it!
Now that you have some honey, what will you do with it? Will you sell any to friends, family or via the local Farmer's Market? There are some basic guidelines you'll need to follow to keep yourself legal and out of trouble. Dr. Bentz will also go over this information. Bring your questions and see you there.
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.
