Pajaro Apiary Work Day

August 21 @ 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Join us for a “Beat the Heat” work day at the GBA Apiary this Sunday, Aug 21 from 8:30-10:30.

We will be beginning prep for winter and next year. Our goal is to get 25 hives through the winter strong enough to create nucs for early spring. Many tasks are needed – pitch in on what you find interesting and enjoyable.

  • Jamie will be checking the mite load of hives recently treated with OA.
  • Arthur is locating and setting up hives to be populated.
  • Steve will be scraping and painting previously used hive boxes. The club has acquired 30 lightly used deeps and lids that could use some cleaning and paint.

Bring tools and protection for the tasks that suit your interests. Any color exterior grade paint will be put to use.
