York County Beekeepers Association

Open Hive at Emery Farm Honey

Joe Barberi hosted about 20 YCBA members on the first blue sky day in more than a week.

Joe opened four colonies, and while primarily inspecting for brood pattern, larvae development and finding the queen, answered questions and gave tips on: splits, swarm prevention, bee behavior, sting treatments, queen genetics, ventilation holes, and using a queen excluder to prevent a re-swarming.

Everyone had lots of opportunity for close up looks at beautifully filled frames of very cooperative bees.

Thanks go to Joe and Lynne Gobeil for expertise and answers, and to all who shared info and questions.
