The next meeting of the WBFS is this Sunday, 19th July, 3-4.30pm at Woodend Neighbourhood House (note the new venue). The theme will be “What should we be doing over Winter”. We hope to explore such topics as: feeding or not feeding colonies; what to look for in assessing the health of the hive during this time; how to clean your frames and boxes; protecting against wax moth and other pests; and to process your wax; how you can use your wax; and so on. It will be largely discussion based so I hope that all the experienced beekeepers will contribute to the discussions.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday. Please bring $5 and a small plate.
