Meeting highlights – Aug18

The meeting started early at the Apiary with a couple of groups going over the winter preparation activities to consider at this time of year and the beginners’ group looking at a hive. John reminded us all to come with suitable footwear (wellies or ankle protection).

Back in the hall, Stuart Hatton from Hatton Lodge Apiary gave us a thorough description of the various UK approved varroa treatments and associated application methods.

Corresponding information can be downloaded on the BBKA website.
