Improvers Evening - Swarm Prevention
Members evenings are to cover interventions with bees that require a little more experience than beginners have, so is for all non-beginner members.
• Brood Comb Management 1 June 2019 Leader TBD
◦ Bailey comb change
◦ Shook swarm
◦ Partial comb replacement
These Members Evenings are held at:
Green Farm, Twyning Green, TWYNING, GL20 6DF Click here for Google Maps
Please come with wellies or stout boots as you'll be walking through a disinfectant trough
Bring Marigold Gloves, you'll need these for handling bees
DO NOT bring your own bee suit, (unless previously agreed) - these are provided
Be aware of the weather, dress in layers - it can get chilly in the evenings and hot in a bee suit
We will start with a 'team chat' - this will be about bee related stuff, and no handouts so make notes if you want to
We will then do any maintenance required
Members Bees are on separate stands from the beginners and will be managed by those who are regularsa to these evenings.
At the end of the session you will be expected to help clear up, just as you will need to in your own apiary.
