We’re hosting one more equipment work bee to assemble hive frames and place foundation in the frames for our new hives at Grow Benzie (3 new ones!). We also need to prep the site and blocks for the return of the hives (they’re away for two weeks to prevent drifting back into the old hives) and to figure out an easier way to remove the mite board on bottom. Depending on how many people attend, this shouldn’t take more than an hour for everything.
The Benzie Area Beekeepers Guild is a non-profit organization open to the public which encourages participation by local beekeepers and potential beekeepers with an interest in natural beekeeping. Our goal is to raise bees that are prolific while hygienic, able to over-winter in Northern Michigan and resist Varroa mites. We aim to support each other through discussion, hands-on demonstrations and communal co-operation.
Wednesday, May 31st from 6-7pm
Everyone of all experience levels are welcome.
