  • basic hive inspections
  • colony management during the nectar flow
  • pests and disease
  • splits and requeening

Bring your ideas! This is a very casual event----we can discuss anything you'd like!

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

*********

"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.
