March - Spring has sprung early

Next bee project day : Saturday March 31st   2pm or later if sport is an issue and you all agree to start later - PLEASE give feedback-
It will be a hands on bees day - LIGHT colored clothes, covered up including feet, jeans are fine but have socks you can tuck in...if very hot dress with shorts and bring the other covering clothes with you. We have 6 veils , so no-one will be without head covering when working bees

80 degs today, Mr. Wally and I, with help from Fire Bob worked my hives to see how well the Swarm Hive has grown.

Some may ask why Swarm Hive ? Well I name my hives, and this was the swarm caught across the road from my house last year, that I dropped onto Mr Wally and I, we both had bees all over us and did not get stung.

Parents , please print out the Spring Management page and ask your scout to read before next lesson... I will be asking questions from it. While all have done a great job working with the woodenware parts so far, we need to keep up the momentum and complete the education.

There is a very very good chance we will have bees by the next meeting, I would like to divide up all the Scouts / and leaders into two teams, and we will start working the hives by team, the second hive will be a Package, which will arrive mid April, and we will make a good day of installing them as a group.

Our Bee books are almost ready to go to the printer, I hope to finish editing in next week, have to bring it down by about 4 pages so the printer can give us a 50 page booklet in the end.

Please vote on Hive decorations - PARENTS - again get your boys involved in this.... the poll is top right of front page of the Blog.
