Honey Show 2016

Annual honey show coming up very soon, Bank Holiday Monday at Headstone Manor. Just about time to get last minute entries in to the Harrow in Leaf secretary at time of writing. Volunteers still needed, especially for setup and clearing after on the last list circulated. Members can also sell honey. Volunteers or honey sales, see the recent email circulations and contact Salmaan asap.

Varroa Treatment

It's that time of the years again. Varroa treatment after honey harvest is highly recommended to reduce the mite load going into autumn when the bees are trying to raise healthy bees that will be resident over winter. Treatments are available at reasonable cost and per hive quantities from Brian at the apiary on Sundays (except 3rd Sunday in the month).

Not the shed, just a shed

Annual Honey Show

HBKA Annual Honey Show 2016 is again part of the Harrow in Leaf show, which is in turn part of Headstone Village Show at Headstone Manor on Bank Holiday Monday 29th August. The full show schedule is downloadable from the Harrow in Leaf show website and includes the honey and wax entries.

Microscopy Interest Day at Hatch End

Any HBKA member interested in looking at pollen and making slides of pollen samples, Danuta and Jo will be at the apiary from 10 until 12 on Sat 16th July. If you have a compound microscope then you are welcome to come along and bring it too. There will need to be a limit of 15 maximum so it will be those who make contact first. Priority will be given to those who have not been able to attend other sessions before or those with microscopes who are hoping to take the interest further.
