Friday in the Apiary: August 19, 2016

Please join us on Friday August 19 at the OSU Apiary from 3-5pm.

 

First, we will discuss fall feeding. Bees raised in the fall will be the ones carrying the colony through the winter. These need to be strong, healthy bees. Then, we will check on the colonies we treated for mites at the last Friday in the Apiary. Were our treatments effective? If not, now what?

Are you an OMB participant? Bring your field worksheets and we'll create a group just for OMB to get them checked off.

Journeys: If you would like to lead a group through one of the hives, you can earn service points! Please contact me for details.

This event is weather dependent and space is limited due to parking! Please RSVP to carolyn.breece@oregonstate.edu for location, details, and for notification of possible changes.

*********

"Friday in the Apiary" is an opportunity to gather, visit, and learn more about beekeeping at OSU's apiary at the Oak Creek Center for Urban Horticulture. Every third Friday of the month, you are invited to come and discuss hive management strategies for the month and get to know other beekeepers. This is a casual, loosely structured event intended to provide a learning experience in a relaxed setting.
