We can only hope that today's rain perks up the goldenrod that started strong but has recently faded a little leaving only knotweed sustaining colonies in my yards.
This summer was the hottest in our 105-year weather-keeping history, making it difficult to squeeze in heat-sensitive treatments for varroa. But the gloves are off, and you can now treat and feel confident that the colony will do fine.
We look forward to our wintering workshop this Saturday, September 10th, at our Cheshire bee yard. This workshop is the last opportunity during 2022 to meet other beekeepers and learn how to winter your colonies. Hope to see you all there.
