2019 Beekeeping Hardware Workshop

The Huguenot Beekeeper's Association is hosting their annual Beekeeping Hardware Workshop on March 23rd, 2019 from 9am - 3pm. Bring your unassembled hive bodies, frames and foundation and let us help you build your beekeeping equipment. HBA club members will provide air tools, jigs, staples, nails and glue and assist you as needed. You just need to bring your unassembled equipment.

Individual stations will be setup for assembling hive bodies, assembling frames, wiring frames and installing foundation in frames. This event is free and open to the public. Detailed information can be found on the Beekeeping Hardware Workshop Flyer




Why Did My Bees Die?

Winter is the most common time of the year for beekeepers to lose a colony. Beginning on page 14 of the "Wintering Bees In Cold Climates" document is a process to identify the reason the colony was lost so that the beekeeper can take corrective action to protect other colonies and increase survival rates in subsequent years: Diagnosing Deadouts
