New Meetup: Hive Inspection And Oxalic Acid Treatment Demo

From: Jim

Announcing a new Meetup for The New York City Beekeeping Meetup Group!

What: Hive Inspection And Oxalic Acid Treatment Demo

When: Wednesday, May 19,[masked]:30 PM

Todds Home
(RSVP To See Address)

Todd, who keeps bees in the Jackson Heights neighborhood in Queens, will be inspecting his recently-hived packages, and taking the prudent step of treating varroa that hitchhiked in his packages with Oxalic Acid. This treatment is in accordance with both Biodynamic beekeeping standards and the draft USDA Certified Organic standards.

Todd found a small number of varroa on a sticky board he inserted under his screened hive bottom, and he wisely wants to deal with the problem before the varroa have a chance to breed.

Those attending should be prepare to climb a ladder and squeeze through an access hatch, as is common for brownstone roofs in NYC.
