At the Woodend Bee-Friendly Society meeting on Sunday 20th September, 3-4.30pm, at Woodend Neighbourhood House, Jim Sansom will be conducting a session on Swarm Control. We are gradually moving into swarm season so this will be an immensely useful session covering:
why bees swarm
how to create conditions in your colony to promote or discourage swarming
how to create an artificial swarm
tips on capturing a swarm
Please bring a plate and $5.
