SIBA General Meeting – Overwintering nucs
September 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
For the September meeting, we'll hear from Dave Broxterman again! This time, how to over-winter nucs. Dave does a great job at overwintering nucs. We know this because he has donated one each spring for the last several years to be raffled off at our spring meetings.
You can downsize a small colony that is not building up, or perhaps save a late swarm in a nuc. Last season, I actually combined my observation hive with a late swarm that ended up losing its queen. Join us this Thursday as Dave goes over the how's and why's of overwintering nucs.
SIBA Meetings occur the 3rd Thursday of each month through the year. Topic will be announced here ahead of each meeting.
