2019 RABA Field Day

Mother Nature favored the 2019 Richland Area Beekeepers’ Association Field Day held Saturday, May 11, 2019 at Dave Duncan’s apiary in Crestline, OH.  The weather was cool, the sun was shining, and the bees were exceptionally well-behaved. 🙂 Check out the many photos in this portfolio.  You’ll see photos of smoker lighting, smoker fuel types, hive tool cleaning, hive inspection, alcohol wash, oxalic acid treatment, and bee log extraction. Special thanks to our apiary host, our grill master, our shuttle driver, and everyone who helped make this fun and educational experience possible!
