August 2015 – The Beekeepers Calendar

Summer Honey Harvest in Maine

Summer Honey Harvest in Maine

 

• Register (and start packing) for EAS (Eastern Apiculture Society) Conference – August 10-14, 2015 at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada – Highly recommended for any Beekeeper who want to raise their levels of skill and knowledge.

•  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
