Franklin County Beekeepers Monthly Meeting

Our July Meeting is on Thursday, July 20, 2017 will be hosted by Dan and Bonita Conlon of Warm Colors Apiary in S. Deerfield. The address is 2 South Mill River Road, South Deerfield. The meeting starts PROMPTLY at 7:00PM.
Our meeting will focus on Mite Control. Colonies infested with Varroa mites typically produce less honey and are susceptible to secondary infections and death. We will be inspecting and assessing hives for possible infestation and determine treatment. We will demonstrate mite counts using the powdered sugar and alcohol wash methods as well as have a discussion on State regulations as it applies to treatment options.
Bring Your Veil.
Also, please bring your items for our Raffle. Club membership dues can be paid to Eileen Palumbo.
See you at the Meeting!
