The treasury report was given: At the end of June we had $555.92

Dues are still $10 a person or $15 per family.

The following work days for block laying on the new club house are: September 13, 2014

and October 11, 2014.

If you use the drone cell foundation to test for varroa mites: If you see 3 to 10 mites per 100

drone bees, put frames in freezer for 4 days to kill varroa mites.

Can treat hives for varroa mites with Apistan strips, Mite - Away strips or Hopguard.

Nuc bees are better than package bees, because they have five frames of bees with the queen,

and already drawn out frames.

Millie Bee has nucs for $115.

Sharon ask did honey bees like or benefit from the crotalaria plant. She has a field of it. The

answer was no, they do not.  They like partridge pea, which blooms from June till frost.

White Clover they like, along with Japanese honeysuckle, wild cherry and crepe myrtle.

The Alabama State Convention will be in Clanton, AL this September.

Our next meeting will be October 25, 2014.
