August 2014 – The Beekeepers Calendar

Summer Honey Harvest in Maine

Summer Honey Harvest in Maine


→     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.

→     Attend an “Open Hive” at your local Bee Club
