Final overwintering class of the year.
As the temperatures start to drop and the rain comes back, the bees have one more chance to get some help before it gets too cold and rainy to safely inspect brood. Come join us to learn how to decrease your moisture in your colonies and keep your bees as warm as possible. This will also include more mite checks as keeping the mites off your winter cluster is essential.
