First Year Bee Yard
June 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This week we will be checking each of the hives carefully checking for queens since we have not done that the past two weeks. We will be doing a Mite Check on one of the hives using the alcohol wash with the Mite Check container. If warranted, we will be treating with Mite Away Quick Strips (MAQS).
Possibility of rain Wednesday afternoon and evening. I use the Weather Channel app for the radar. Remember, the weather many times splits and goes around Waterman Farm instead of through the Farm. I make a decision at 4:00 p.m. whether to cancel or not. The cancellation notice goes out through our Facebook page: OSU First Year Bee Yard. If you are not signed up to participate on it, please apply quickly. Kevin Kise will approve you if you know the location of the Bee Yard.
