WCB open hive: June 11

Join us on Saturday, June 11 at 1 pm for an open hive at the WCB club yard in Newfane! 

This event is open to WCB club members and Vermont Beekeepers Association (VBA) South Yard members*. Since the VBA South Yard in West Windsor is temporarily closed, come on down to Newfane to meet some new beekeepers! 

We’ll do a general inspection of the hives and discuss what we find. We’ll also talk about swarms and do a varroa mite wash demonstration. And we will split one of our hives to create a nuc we will raffle off in July. Come learn (or remind yourself) how to do mite washes and a split. Bring some cash if you want to buy raffle tickets for the nuc!

If you don’t know how to get to the club yard in Newfane, email us at weisbatty@gmail.com and we’ll give you directions. And if you are not a WCB member yet, we’ll sign you up at the open hive.

*Note that VBA South Yard members do not need to join WCB to attend the WCB open hive.
