WDBKA Apiary Autumn Clear Up🍂🐝🍁

There was a lot of concentrated activity at the Netherbury Apiary at the final session of the season. Many thanks to those who turned up to clean, sort and tidy the Apiary. 

The supers were stacked and prepared for a treatment of acetic acid. This will destroy the spores of Chalkbrood, Nosema, and prevent any Wax Moth infestations.

Fondant was added to each hive to supplement stores,  and a bag of shavings was placed above the crownboard on the Nationals to keep the bees  and their fondant warm.
Everything had a good clean and a general tidy up … ready for the spring! 🍃
