Our Program on June 12, 2023
Gretchen, Russ, & the MBA Class will summarize recent field trips to 3 apiaries.
17 MBA students inspected ~20 bee hives & harvested 34 lbs of honey.
We’ll show pictures of inspections, harvesting & bottling honey.
We’ll review an inspection checklist & why we look for each item.
In the meeting, we’ll ask who from the full MBA group wants to attend a future field trip, & who has a bee yard & is willing to host a field trip.
We'll also have our regular overview of what to do this month in the hive.
