This months speaker will be Carolyn Breece. The title of her talk is “Let’s Get Your Bees Through the Winter”.
Do you lie awake at night in December or January thinking about your honey bees? Will they make it? Did I do enough to prepare them? Are they already dead? Let’s help you get a better sleep this winter by putting in an all-out effort in colony preparation now. September is a crucial month for overwintering prep. We will go through a checklist of tasks you can do to help your colony successfully overwinter.
