Are we planning to do “Around the Hive” as our last session of the Beginning Beekeeping class? Weather is finally improving so that we can plan this. It will be mandatory for anyone who attends to wear at least a veil. Linda reported that the class went very well and we received positive feedback.
We had an open discussion tonight which included swarms, some tips on ways to keep newly caught swarms from swarming again, the weather, and several members shared various experiences.
