Apiary Hygiene Masterclass
It was a cold, damp and misty night but a few brave souls ventured to the apiary for Andy Gowdy's presentation on Apiary hygiene. With a bottle of bleach, a container of Flash, soda crystals and gas canisters with a variety of hoses Andy was able to demonstrate cheap and easy methods of disinfecting a hive and beekeeping equipment. All products available at local stores for a minimal payout.
By 7.45pm the light was getting low, the kettle was boiling and the chill was setting in but at least it didn't rain!
