  • Honeybee fall management workshop today at Perry Central

    LEOPOLD – With fall on the way, it is time to start thinking about how we will help the bees build their stores for winter.

    The condition of the colony going into winter is vital to winter survival. Healthy “fat” bees with low mite populations and good honey supplies stand the best chance of overwintering well, particularly in very cold winters.

    Fall mite treatments contribute to a hive’s overwintering success.
