A meeting of Big Sky Beekeepers was held at 6:00pm on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at the club apiary at Ten Spoon Winery.  There was a demonstration of spring hive inspection (we  opened and inspected some of the club hives) and a discussion of what you should be looking for and what steps to take if you encounter problems.  We found that one of our hives had made several swarm cells, and a queen was starting to emerge from one of the cells!  It was a great opportunity to observe honeybees in the process of colony reproduction.  There was a good turnout for the meeting on a very pleasant May evening in Montana.
