BRBS Workshop May 2016: Splits and Sugar Shakes

On Saturday, BRBS held its May Practical Beekeeping Workshop. Once again, Mr Eugene Brown, an officer of the North Carolina Beekeepers Association and Program Director of Surry County Beekeepers Association was our guest speaker. He covered the subject of making splits: when to, when not to, why and how. He also spoke on how to do a sugar shake mite count. Then everyone headed out to the store hives and participated in a demonstration of the subjects covered. Great workshop and great attendance also! Thanks again to Mr Brown and all who attended…especially those of you who traveled from out of town to be here!
