Fellow Beekeepers,

I would like to invite you to our next monthly Beekeepers meeting on Monday, May 8th, 2017 at 7p.m..

We will meet in room 116 at the Menomonie Alliance Church, 502 21st St N, Menomonie, WI 54751. (3 blocks north of the Hospital on 21st ST).

First: For those who were unable to attend our last meeting or those who just want to see Jim Burritt's research presentation again, here is a link where you can watch it online:

Our May meeting will have something for everyone:

- We will present the results of our informal honeybee colony winter loss survey

- For new beekeepers we will have a presentation on what your colonies should look like by now and what to do next.

- Tom and Dave will give a presentation on how to do splits and why nucs are so useful in an apiary.

No lunch.

Hope to see you all Monday, May 8th.
