A meeting of Big Sky Beekeepers was held at 6:00pm on Thursday, September 8, 2016 at the club apiary. We discussed how to prepare your hives for winter and there was a demonstrated the mountain camp method of winter feeding.  It was cool and windy, so we did not open the club hives.  There was a demonstration of an easy way for you to process the wax cappings you are left with after extracting and a tutorial on how to  make some useful products using beeswax. There was a demonstration of how to use the club honey extractor, in preparation for our club honey extraction event.  If you missed the meeting, instructions on how to use the extractor can be found at:  Extractor Instructions
