Ordinarily, we would meet on the fourth Monday of the month .However, since this is Memorial Day this year, we have moved our meeting date one week forward.
Our regular meeting will be held on Monday May 20th, 2019 at 7 pm. All meetings are held at the Fond du Lac Tribal Community College in Cloquet MN. Doors will open at 6 pm to give people a chance to visit with other members and compare notes on the past keeping season. This is a great opportunity for our new members and guests to meet others in the group and to ask questions that they might have regarding bees and keeping them healthy and happy.
After a short business meeting, we will have a presentation from Larry VanLieshout, FieldWatch Data Steward, at the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Larry will review with us the features and benefits in registering your apiaries on BeeCheck.com.
We will also be demonstrating methods to check for varroa mites in your hives. Treatment options will also be discussed.
Please plan to join us and bring lots of questions.
