Saturday, March 25th, Randall Austin graciously hosted an OCBA Field Day at his apiary. Recent graduates of OCBA’s Bee School learned how to light a smoker, inspect a hive, and do a sugar shake to evaluate the Varroa mite load in their colonies. The Field Day offerred many new beekeepers their first look inside an active hive. As always, Randall’s bees were ‘honeys’ and remained calm and composed throughout.
