Apiary Chores for October

Complete your varroa treatments.

Each colony requires about 45 lbs. Of carbohydrate plus pollen.  

If colony supplies are low, feed your bees 2:1 sugar/water.

Feeding fondant inside the hive is a useful carbohydrate supplement.  

While temperatures are >60 degrees, keep checking your hive beetle traps.

 Turn your entrance reducers to the smaller size hole.

Remain aware of possible robbing.
