Friday in the Apiary: April 21

Please join us on Friday April 21, 2017 at the OSU Apiary from 3-5pm.

 April's theme: Spring Colony Management

We'll break up into groups and work through colonies based on the experience level of each group. Topics include new colony management, making splits, swarm control, mite monitoring (always!), building strong colonies for the nectar flow. Bring your questions and ideas!

Are you an OMB participant? Bring your field worksheets and we'll create a group just for OMB to get them checked off.

This event is weather dependent and space is limited due to parking! Please RSVP to for location, details, and for notification of possible changes.


"Friday in the Apiary" is an opportunity to gather, visit, and learn more about beekeeping at OSU's apiary at the Oak Creek Center for Urban Horticulture. Every third Friday of the month, you are invited to come and discuss hive management strategies for the month and get to know other beekeepers. This is a casual, loosely structured event intended to provide a learning experience in a relaxed setting.
