Time to extract your honey!


Extract your honey making sure to leave stores for the bees.  The first year you may not get honey as the bees are busy establishing their new home.

August is the time to Treat for mites using either FormicPro or Apiguard if not done in July.  Use this not  more than 1x per year*
