April In-Person Meeting

Tuesday, April 9 @ 7:00 PM 9:00 PM

Join us for our monthly in-person meeting! Our speaker will be “Petaluma Bee Lady” Christine Kurtz.

Her topic will be Reading the Monitoring Board. What can various hive debris, frass and trash tell you about honeybees? Oodles — and you will be amazed!  With the use of screened bottom boards in conjunction with the observation boards, interesting and helpful correlations can be made to what is going on in the hive. We will discuss how to “read” the monitoring board and how to interpret the clues the various debris give us. The skill of reading monitoring boards can be helpful during times we cannot go into our hives due to the season or weather and a quick check can be done without disrupting the bees. Join us on this journey to learn about hive debris, frass and trash — you will never look at it the same way.
