Calendar: July

  • Have your bees on their new location by the first week of July.
  • Extract the honey you removed in June to have the supers available for the fall  honey flow.
  • Return extracted supers to the colonies just before dark to prevent robbing.
  • Pack honey in a quality attractive package – all new glassware and lids with a label.
  • Continue to check for swarms in mountain areas; combine swarms issuing after July 15 with weak colonies.
