Hello Mile Hivers!
The April meeting for the Mile Hive Bee Cub will be help on Wed. April 9. We will meet in the To Bee Or Not To Bee classroom (725 W 39 Ave, Denver, CO 80216). Meetings begin at 7:00 PM.
The Agenda is as follows:
1. Final vote on a club logo. See below for options and, if you can, print the attached ballot and bring it to the meeting.
2. The main portion of the meeting will cover the installation of Nucleus Colonies (Nucs) and Packages. If you have new bees coming in the next couple of weeks you will want to make sure that you have everything ready, beforehand.
3. Hopefully, we will have some updates on the other projects that have been brought up at previous meetings.
For the meeting: Bring in frames of brood that did not make it through the winter so we can all observe and discuss. We will, also, be looking at how and when to start the Spring feeding. Thanks, Gregg.
We will be discussing how we can get a head start on giving our bees the best shot at a great Spring and Summer.
Tim Brod has agreed to fill us in on his recent trip to India, as well.
We are hoping to have some ideas for a logo brought in to this meeting. This is your chance to make a contribution that will be a part of the club going on into the future.
Kristina will be bringing us up on the Elm Bore issue and what we can do to help our Bees from being exposed to lethal pesticides.
If you are having trouble getting the membership form to print out or have not officially joined us, I will have forms with me.
The Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz: from our members:
I have heard that many bees are bringing home pollen. Anyone know what it is from?
Make sure that you have worked out your 2014 dues with Mitch.
I am putting this reminder out to over 70 different email addresses! We can get a lot done with all these interested parties. What would you like to see us accomplish this year? See you at the meeting!
Make sure to give your hives a “lift” in order to see how they are doing for winter stores. My hive became very light over the last cold spell.
