York County Beekeepers Association

Get Ready for Spring Hands on Workshop

About 20 beekeepers turned out on March 21st for our first in-person gathering in over two years. Highlights included ‘bee talk’, announcements, questions, snacks, and examining dead outs. Lynne Lincourt, Lynne Gobeil and Joe Barbari led the hive autopsies. On the left, Lynne and Lynne are looking for the queen and any evidence of deformed wing. On the right, Joe has a frame with some capped honey and a small cluster of bees. Based on our observations, both colonies likely failed due to problems with excess moisture. Everyone agreed this workshop was very informative and it was great to ‘bee’ together again.
