Cabarrus County Beekeepers

Bob's Flower and Hive Report

July 2014 Meeting

Hive Report

Keep water available for the bees. This will help keep them away from areas where they are not wanted. Also have water for the beekeeper when working in the bee yard. Robbing can be induced very easily when working bees at this time of year. Smoke all entrances first, and keep inspections short. The time to check and treat for Varroa mites is now.
