Monthly Meetings- We meet at 7 p.m. on the 4th Thursday of each month in the Agriculture Building lower level. Meeting Calendar





MARCH HIVE MANAGEMENT
Warm days are becoming more frequent and bees are flying.
They still need plenty of carbs to keep themselves warm during cold nights.
Make sure your bees have plenty to eat. Too cool yet for 1:1 sugar water.
If necessary, feed fondant  and pollen patty inside the hive.   
Not really time yet to reverse the hives. We feel the urge to do this, but it does stress the bees and disrupt the activity they are accustomed to.
Insert IPM boards to reduce cold drafts inside the lower brood chamber.
VENTILATION BECOMES ESSENTIAL DURING WARM DAYS AND COLD NIGHTS! DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT?       Get Answers?
Field mice are also active - keep your entrance reducers in - use the small hole as long as you think possible.

Next meeting is Thursday, March 26 at 7:00 p.m.

Location: Basement of the Ag. Building beside the Old Courthouse.
