Meridian and Meon Valley Beekeepers’ are pleased to invite you to our first joint venture, Bee Health Day on Saturday 2 April between 10.30 and 15.45 at Warnford Village Hall, SO32 3LB. The aim of the day is to improve our skills so we can keep our bees healthier.
There’ll be microscopes set-up with slides and advisers on hand to provide tuition on how to recognised Nosema and other common bee diseases.
You’ll be able to check a sample of your own bees for Nosema and you’ll have an opportunity to learn how to dissect bees to check for Acarine.
There will also be a flower and pollen microscope with talk and a bee anatomy and dissection demonstration by Master Beekeeper James Donaldson.
It should be a wonderfully informative and enjoyable event and of course, there’ll be refreshments throughout the day.
There’s free parking on site and transportation (from specific locations) is available for those who would find that more convenient.
