Join the Leatherstocking Beekeepers’ Association for the monthly meeting on May 25 at 7 p.m. at The Farmers’ Museum.
Highlights of this month’s meeting will include member Richard Burroughs presenting on “Inspecting your hive frames: essentials for evaluating an installed nuc colony,” followed by guest speaker Mike Johnston, of Johnston’s Honeybee Farm in Eaton NY, presenting on “Package bee, nuc, and Queen production.”
Each presentation will include a Q&A session so come with questions!
In July, the beekeepers will be hosting an On-site Hands-on hive inspection where novice/beginner beekeepers will get pointers on the best ways to work with the bees. There will be 14 spaces available at this workshop, held July 15 at 10 a.m. with a raindate of July 22, so sign-up early.
We’ll see you there, and happy Beekeeping.

Sounds like a perfect presentation at this moment, because we like many others just installed our new Nucs this Monday evening.
Is there a charge for this presentation and do you have to register?
Congratulations on your new colonies! These presentations are a part of the regular meeting, no registration required.
