October Meeting
Thursday 10/12/2017
7:00 PM   

Our October meeting will include a talk by Anne Frey of the Southern Adirondack Beekeepers Association.  Her topic will be “Oops!” It’s a humorous look at when things go wrong. 

Pot Luck Supper:  Bring a dish to share

Location:           The Crispe Room in the Vermont Veterans Home
                           325 North Street
                           Bennington VT 05201

Tasks to be on top of this time of year:
·       Make sure there are no mice in your hives and install mouse guards
·       Check for honey stores and begin to feed if hives are light
·       Finish harvest, extraction, get extracted frames cleaned up by hives
·       Check that hive woodenware is in good shape for winter

As you are putting away items for winter don’t hesitate to set aside a tool or piece of equipment that could be used as a door prize!
