I’m afraid the weather forecast looks bad, and the rain has set in for the afternoon and evening.
Consequently I’m going to call tonight’s meeting off. Shame, there are things to be done, but Pete and I will have to catch up with them in the next day or two.
In the next week or three we’ll be looking at taking off supers and summer honey (sadly, not a lot!) , and putting Apiguard on to treat for varroa. Hard to think that the season’s drawing to an end already! August is varroa treatment time and, to me at least, any honey the bees collect after the next couple of weeks is theirs for winter stores. Then Mrs B and I can go on holiday!
See you all next Wednesday.
