The February 2019 meeting will be held on the 11th at 6:30 – 8:30 PM at the library in the Sanford Junior High School.
The guest speaker will be Jennifer Lund, Maine State Apiarist: “Learn How to Autopsy a Honey Bee Colony”. Hives can die from any number of causes. Sometimes the death of a hive is due to poor management, other times it is due to factors outside the beekeeper’s control. The best way to determine the cause of the death and learn from it, is by performing a hive autopsy. Spend an evening learning about the common causes of hive losses, how to determine what killed a hive and how to move forward after a loss.
