Winter is Coming… Are you Prepared?

Hey Beekeepers,

YouTube would not let us schedule our premier for 7:00 pm, so we will premier live fifteen minutes earlier at 6:45 PM instead.

Winter is coming… Are you prepared? Today we will discuss emergency feeding demo how to make sugar cakes and bee fondant with Aaron. Then John will discuss winter prep and cluster mechanics. Virginia’s weather is not consistent, and us beekeepers have to develop flexible strategies in order to maintain the welfare of our colonies.

Tonight, 6:45 PM 9/10/2020
