Next Meetinghoney bee

DCBA October monthly meeting
October 6, 2015 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
 
By October it will be too late to treat your bees for mites, ensure you have a young productive queen or do too much meaningful feeding. If, however, you have already done these things, we will have a quick presentation on one successful overwintering technique (mountain camp sugar) and time for additional discussion about what type of wrapping, moisture control, insulation, etc. members have found to be effective.
 

Membership

We are an informal group of beekeepers in the Wisconsin Dane County area. Anyone keeping bees or interested in keeping bees is welcome to participate. Join the a Madbees google group to join in the email discussion and/or join us our monthly meetings.
