A new beekeeping season is upon us. Those of us who have ordered bees from Steve Victors of Alaska Wildflower Honey are scheduled to pick up our bees tomorrow, Saturday, April 18th around 5P.M. at 605 Betty Street.
Things I do before the bees arrive tomorrow:
Store my equipment indoors
Prepare sugar water (1:1 ratio)
Prepare hive location
Have a chemical-free spray bottle filled with sugar water ready
Have a pollen patty ready
I will have free mini-marshmallows available.
Pollen patties will also be available for sale tomorrow.
The 2015 Beekeepers calendar will be posted this evening.
