Important Beekeeping Notes: BoH Notification, Varroa Counts & Last Chance for Group Order

From: Liane
Sent on: Friday, March 29, 2013 8:16 AM

Reminder: BoH notification is required annually for existing hives March 31, 2013.
In case you have not received it, the form is available HERE.

New beekeepers must also comply with the notification requirement within 30 days of establishing their hive(s). 

It's a good time to check your bees & do a drop count - And send in some photos!
Forecast says highs in the 50's several days coming up -
Depending on whether you see brood and the degree of the dropcount, you may want to consider oxalic acid trickle treatment (organic/biodynamic/scientific).
We love getting photos from beekeepers - Inspection photos are particularly welcome to develop the reference library. But we like snapshots too!

We'll be posting guidance on how to do a drop count, and info about appropriate treatment options on the Forum site.  To be eligible for an account there, if you haven't already, please Register.

Group Order & Forums Site
If you need gear or NYC-made beesuits, we've extended the Group Order deadline but really will need to wrap it up in the next few days. If you have requested an account but had trouble getting onto the Forums/Group Order site please email right away and we'll get you on board.
