COARC Saturday in the Apiary

September is critical to find out if our winter preparations we started in August is working out. Did mite levels drop? How do the colonies look after being treated with Apiguard, Hopguard, MAQS or Apivar? What to do next if treatments were not sufficient enough? Feeding: necessary? Did the bees get any benefit from rabbit brush?

Participants in the Oregon Master Beekeeping Program

- Apprentices: Earn an education point! If you like to work on your seasonal checklist, please let Heike know ahead of time.

- Journeys: Like to lead a group through one of the hives? Please, let Heike know ahead of time and you can earn service points!

Bring your hat/veil/gloves and water bottle. Plus a brown bag lunch if you have time afterwards to stay a little bit longer. We could discuss questions over lunch, if you like. RSVP Heike Williams at for details and notification of possible changes. This event is weather dependent. Looking forward to seeing you there!

“Saturday in the Apiary” is an opportunity to gather, visit, and learn more about beekeeping at OSU’s apiary in Madras. You are invited to come and discuss hive management strategies for the month and get to know other beekeepers in the OMB program and in the region. This is a casual, loosely structured event intended to provide a learning experience in a relaxed setting.
