Monthly Tip

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.
