Pictures from the Field Day in Midrand 4 June 2016

What a stunning venue and gathering. Thanks to the guys for sharing so much info with the us. It is mind boggling when you are a newbee to bee keeping. The info to be learnt at one of these outings is priceless. Thanks again to all involved. Enjoy the Photos.

 

Beegin

Thanks to Ivan Brown for a most interesting talk at the bee meeting on Thursday night.

This is what Ivan is about. Beegin is focused on the development of an appropriate beekeeping technology system for local apiculture and urban agriculture in South Africa.

You can find out more details on his Facebook about what he is up to. Beegin on Facebook

Badger Damage

11 x hives vs 1x Honey Badger in Vaalwater.

Badger = 1, Kai = 0

The cage is what I use now to protect the hives.

Thanks to Kai for the photos
