Our second Field Day event will help to set our hives in good order going into fall. We’ll talk about the summer dearth and what you should expect to see in your hive, mite treatments, pulling and adding supers for the last nectar flow, and feeding as we transition into the next season. Note: All attendees
are required to sign a waiver and wear protective gear. More details to come.
