Elk Valley Beekeepers’ Field Day

Posted on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 1:25 pm

The Elk Valley Beekeeping Association, in conjunction with the Franklin County Extension Service, is holding a beekeeping field day on June 23 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Franklin County Extension office at 406 Joyce Lane in Winchester.

Topics will include seasonal hive management, integrated pest management techniques, honey extraction and splitting honeybee colonies. Weather permitting, members and attendees will actually open working honeybee colonies. A potluck dish will be required for lunch. Extra bee suits will be available for attendees that do not currently have on and want to look inside a working beehive. This program is designed for anyone interested in beekeeping.
