About the event

Members RSVP before January 25, 2023. 

Hands-on activity stations 12:30-2:00pm:

Building “all-season” mouse guard bottom boards: Also known as Marion Mouse Guards after Dr. Marion Ellis who developed the design. This demonstration shows how to adjust bottom boards for all season protection from mice and no more fussing with entrance reducers.

Queen banking: Learn what banks are used for as well as how one is set up and maintained.

Examining bees and mites up close: Beekeepers can view bees and mites through microscopes at high magnification to see how mites lodge in between the tight crevices of their bee hosts. Come learn about how these parasites feed, disperse, and reproduce within the hive from a really up-close perspective.
