General Meeting @ Montgomery County 4-H Center
Aug 30 @ 7:00 pm

At tonight’s meeting, learn about how to establish, care for, and overwinter nucleus colonies from the nuc experts, certified Master Beekeeper Dr. Vincent Aloyo and Ellen Codd. We’ve all heard and learned about the importance of nucleus colonies as resources in our apiaries, but how is their management different from regular colonies? Vincent and Ellen have managed hundreds of nucs over the years, so be sure to attend this helpful program and learn from the nuc professionals.

Also, Scott Famous will give a summary of the results of MCBA’s queen cell program.
