DCBC Meeting: Dead Hive Scene Investigation – March 21st
March 21 @ 6:30 pm
Topic: Dead Hive Scene Investigation
Presenter : Max Martin
1) Doing a necropsy on a winter dead out hive. It is a process that starts with looking at the hive history from the year before. Then an external evaluation of the hive itself. Then a look inside the hive to do a little Dead Hive Scene Investigation!
2) Inspection of old hive frames and deciding what is good and what should be replaced. We will look at cell wall size, color, age of wax, and other things that play into these decisions.
