There will be two apiary training sessions in September, exact dates to be confirmed nearer the time as a successful inspection is weather dependant.
At the first we will cover the usual general inspection, discussion on beekeeping, focussing on taking honey, varroa treatment and feeding.
At the second we will cover the winter shutdown – an important process if our bees are to survive the winter.
The session is free to MBKA members, but please do let us know if you are hoping to attend. Not only is it useful for planning that we know attendance numbers, but courses may get cancelled if there is little or no interest. Contact the apiary manager on 01686 688562 or by e-mail during the fortnight before the meeting to let him know.
See the general notes on the apiary for the "rules of the road".
