- Honey Bee Diseases
With the current situation, and with our association apiary visits cancelled, we have decided to host a weekly Online Bee Chat to keep up spirits and to ensure that our members, particularly those new to beekeeping, have a place to ask questions and follow along with colony development.
We are proposing Tuesdays at 11am. The sessions will be hosted on Zoom, an online conferencing system. This can be accessed from a computer or laptop, mobile phone or tablet. For the technophobes out there - Zoom is really easy to use, but here is a Youtube video with some helpful information about entering your first chat: https://youtu.be/9isp3qPeQ0E?
We will record the sessions and post them on our private Facebook Group, just in case you can't make one of the virtual session (and even if you can make the session - join the group! ). In the first bee chat we will discuss concerns that any members have about getting to their apiaries to check on bees, so if you are struggling to get out to inspect, either join the meeting or drop a message/email to us so that we have an idea of who needs support. I hope that you will be able to join us. If you are struggling to get setup, please contact me rather than missing out: Webmaster
The link for each week's Zoom Bee Chat will be posted on the private Facebook Group and emailed to current members.
