Outdoor Meetings

The Wednesday 'Open Apiary' sessions have now finished for the year. Unfortunately the unpredictable weather and the outbreak of European Foulbrood in the area have interfered with this programme quite often. We must look forward to a better season next year.

We usually aim to give a demonstration of oxalic acid winter varroa treatment in December. Further details in due course.
