SIBA General Meeting
June 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
SIBA Meetings occur the 3rd Thursday of each month through the year.
Garry Reeves and Jason Morgan will lead the topic of mite washes. We'll pull frames from the hives, and shake samples to be washed, then explain what the numbers mean. This is an essential "tool" that is important for ALL beekeepers to fully understand.
Typically, we'd have done this a little earlier in the season, but is it's never too late to do mite washes or take the time to fully understand this topic. Mites are the #1 cause of colony deaths in our area... and particularly for newer beekeepers who may not be watching them closely. After we pull our spring honey harvest, it will be time to dig in and do mite washes to ensure the bees are situated before moving towards the Fall.
Join us at Garry's workshop Thurs. June 18th at 6:30pm, weather permitting.
