Northern Beaches Beekeepers Apiary Field Day
NBB Apiary Field Day – general inspection and finding and marking Queens
Complete a general inspection of the club hives at this February 2022 apiary day and run through the various methods for finding and marking a queen. Practice queen marking on drones so that members get the opportunity to catch and mark them.
Typically at this time of year, you are looking to see that the brood is healthy and there is enough space for the queen to lay and perhaps see how much honey has been stored.
As always, there will be plenty of time to ask any beekeeping related questions.
COVID Safety Plan: Check-in with NSW QR code is required upon arrival.
The apiary is located at 2 Spicer Rd NORTH, Oxford Falls.
If you come via Wakehurst Pkwy, turn into Oxford Falls Rd West and around 200 meters after the causeway it’s the first road on the left.
Please park on the road on one side so you don’t block the road, and walk 50 m up the driveway to arrive at the apiary (NO PARKING ON THE PROPERTY)
For those who don’t have a veil, the club has a limited number for hire at $5.00 (various sizes)
Biosecurity Gloves are available for all participants. Please leave yours at home to reduce the risk of spreading disease from one apiary to another.
