Summer Hive Inspection Workshop
Massaro Community Farm
Summer management of the hive is never a one-time-a season event. It is ongoing and can be intense. What we do now (or don’t) will indicate the trajectory of the hive as we approach winter. Yes, at the summer solstice the bees begin to think of winter while we think of summer fun. What is your summer inspection plan? This workshop will assist you in forming an effective plan. Expect a discussion on the small hive beetle, varroa, disease, mite treatment, growth of the hive, the queen, the honey harvest, etc.
