See you on August 28th for the Hive Dive at the Crossroads Flow Hive. We’ll meet at 5:30 PM. This is the club hive located along the trails at Crossroads, just south of the Collins Learning Center. I will be checking the hive and demonstrating how honey is harvested from a flow hive. Following the honey harvest, I will demonstrate a powder sugar roll test for mites.
Our 6:30 PM Club Meeting will be at the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads.
