Hurricane Irene?

Allegedly she's headed this way, but I'm still crossing my fingers that the wind will change and she'll blow out to sea before making it up to New England.

This weather report is brought to you by another great question from Annette Isner...

How do we prep the bee hives for a hurricane?

Wax Moth Question...

I checked my 3 hives and one (new hive with boxed bees) had a wax moth on a pollen patty in the feeder. I removed it and checked the entire hive and did not see more. This is the first time I have seen it. What should I do next?

Thanks in advance,
Annetter Isner

July's HCBA BeeBQ...

A big thank you to Carrie and Arthur Naatz for having us all over to eat and socialize! The food was great and there was plenty of it!

Anthony Trani attended the picnic and showed off some of his great beehive woodenware. He is a local craftsman and if you did not attend the picnic but would like to check out his work please click this link Anthony had a lot of nice stuff at very fair prices!
Some of us ventured down to the Naatz's beeyard. I love Carrie's choices of colors!
That's a good looking bunch of beekeepers! From left to right, Mike, Sean, Jessica, Annette, Carrie, Scott and Arthur.
Thanks again to Arthur and Carrie! See everyone in August!
