Harvest honey the 1st week of August if not done in July.

Super hives during goldenrod bloom if needed.

If summer honey was not harvested, top super for goldenrod/fall honey flow.

Unite weak hives and position brood and honey stores in anticipation of winter.

If you were not able to attend EAS in Rhode Island, ask somebody who did about it.
