What should we be doing with our hives this month?
- Even though swarm season is pretty much over, it is still possible to have a swarm. Make sure your bees still have plenty of room in the brood box and that they are not getting honey bound.
- Make sure you are cutting out your drone boards on a regular basis.
- You should be doing regular mite checks.
- Keep an eye on the nectar flow. If we go into a dearth period, you might need to feed your bees.
