Sunday Oct 4th bee meeting: Overwintering bee Hives


Oct 4th Meeting!!

When:  Sunday Oct 4th 1:30pm

Where:  Charlie Simonds apiary  – Honey Bee World, 12805 Rokeby Road, Bennet, NE.  It is just south of Highway 2 between 120th and 134th Streets Southeast of Lincoln.

What:  Charlie will be showing us best practices for overwintering your bee hives.  Bring your protective equipment as we will be around live hives.

Scholarship students and new beekeepers, this is a great learning experience for you as you get ready to put your hives away for winter.  Having strong colonies going into winter sets you up for next year!

As always, these events are also open to the public.  If you have a friend who would like to come, bring them along.
