SIBA General Meeting
January 16, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
SIBA Member Don Richardson will cover Growth Degree Days (GDD), a topic that was covered last winter by David Hocutt when he came to speak about checker boarding as swarm prevention. Many of us have been following GDD to get a better understanding of where we are in the season in order to make decisions about hive management.
Climate differs from region to region... even 20 miles apart. By measuring GDD in your bee yard, there are predetermined benchmarks you can use to know when it is time to checker board, or add supers, etc. Let's get a refresher from Don on Growth Degree Days and go into the next season more cognizant of what the bees are seeing happen around them! See you there.
SIBA Meetings occur the 3rd Thursday of each month through the year. Topic will be announced here ahead of each meeting.
Note: Meeting is at our Winter Location. The Moores Hill Senior Center.
