WCB open hive: October 8

Join us on Saturday, October 8 at 1 pm for an open hive at the WCB club yard in Newfane. This is our last open hive of the 2022 season! 

We’ll inspect the club hives, check for mites, and discuss best practices for overwintering our bees. Come learn what you can do to help keep your bees alive through the winter! We’ll wrap the club hives and share winterizing tips and methods. 

Betterbee has a great 10-point checklist on winterizing. Check it out here.

Bring veils and wear proper shoes and clothing. If you don’t have a veil, let us know ahead of time and we’ll bring extra. 

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.
