February Meeting will have Paul Peterson speaking on the “life cycle of the mite”. He may demonstrate another version of the oxalic vapourizer.
What’s in bloom with Nairn speaking about what to plant in the garden for the bees.

Seedy Saturday – Bob Lucy – February 17th, 2018
Barry Denluck brought up the concept that a commercial beekeeper should not be on the executive. He suggests that if the income of beekeeping products is more than 50% of the beekeepers income then the beekeeper should not be on the executive. Could be looked upon as a conflict of interest.
Meeting adjourned 8:33pm.
