  • External Hive Beetle Traps

    Date: 2012.11.13 | Category: Uncategorized | Response: 1

    Hey there beekeepers!
    I mentioned in the Nov 12 meeting about research on using external traps for Hive beetles, here is the link to the article I read. The reference is at the bottom under the heading “Update.” With a little digging on the website you can find the design for making the traps.
    The web site itself is full of great information on caring for honey bees. http://www.beeworks.com/informationcentre/small_hive_beetle.html

  • Board of Directors

    At our November meeting, we did not put forth a slate of candidates for board of directors.  That was my error.  Perhaps the new President Paul Berry will entertain a slate of directors at the January meeting.
