The May meeting of Big Sky Beekeepers will be held at 6:00pm on Thursday May 13 at the club apiary, located in front of Ten Spoon Winery, 4175 Rattlesnake Drive in Missoula.  We will be inspecting hives, so bring your bee suit.  We will be treating for mites with vaporized oxalic acid.  With swarm season upon us, we will review management techniques that can minimize your risk of losing of bees due to swarming.  We are hoping to capture some swarms in the next couple months.  We will have a signup sheet at our meeting for those of you who would like to help capture a swarm and another for those who would like to purchase a captured swarm.  We will be raffling off some hive equipment, mainly deep hive boxes and frames.  Lastly, a reminder that we still have some of last year’s club honey for sale, at a discounted price for club members (Contact Charlie at 406 239-5245).
