Good meeting again last night. Thanks for all who came and took part. Special thanks to Dr. Douglas Airhart from TTU for his presentation on “Bee Plants”. I was impressed with several of our members who had several suggestions.
I am putting together a swam collection list for the county extension office. If you want your name on the list, please let me know.
Arliss is putting together a inspectors class. This would be limited to 16 members. If interested get your name in pot soon. You can send me an email if you are interested in either of these things at email@example.com
Sooner or later you will see bald brood in your hives and wonder what it indicates. It can be caused by hygenic behavior – bees uncapping diseased or mite infested larva for example. It can also be caused by moving frames around or changing the spacing. But in this excellent article bald brood is from wax moth larva moving under the capped brood, and causing the worker bees to uncap the tops – possibly in preparation for removing damaged brood.
While you are there you should check out the whole website – http://beeinformed.org – lots of good reliable information.
