The Bendigo Branch of the VAA Inc will hold their annual Field Day on Sunday 9th October, 2016 9.30 am – 3 pm 

At the Harcourt Leisure Centre, 25 Binghams Road

Attractions for both the hobby and professional beekeeper including…

Open Bee Hive Demonstrations – bring your own protective clothing.  Three separate hive stations will be in operation.  Ask questions or simply watch as a swarm is hived, learn how to find a queen, find out about supplementary feeding, general bee hive husbandry and how to graft queen cells.

No perfume, aftershave hair spray or strong smelling liniments please – the bees do not like them.

Hobby Corner – Demonstration of equipment.  Extraction of honey.

Auction – Second hand bee equipment and boxes.  Time to clear the shed and bring along those things you no longer use.

Apiary Officers – Instruction on various diseases and how to treat them.
