About the Apiary

This article by Frank Lindsay also appears in the July issue of the New Zealand Beekeeper.

Last month I covered the assembly of supers and it was nice to be reminded of things I do automatically when fixing supers - skew nail (put them in at an angle) as this gives greater strength.

James Tew in the May 1999 Bee Culture and Ron mentioned in an email to me, that spiral-shanked galvanised nails are also available and hold like glue.

Long-time club member and commercial beekeeper Frank Lindsay has produced a semi-regular monthly column for the newsletter for a number of years. These are now available on our web pages. The date given for each is the date of the newsletter in which it appeared, however, the articles themselves were usually written during the preceding month.

About the Apiary

The results of the latest surveillance exercise in the lower North Island has scared a number of hobby beekeepers. "Varroa is here so now I might as well give up beekeeping".

Clearly, this indicates there is a need for a greater understanding of mite control and interpreting the surveillance results. Sit down and reread the green Control of Varroa book that MAF sent you last year or get out the notes you took at the courses AgriQuality ran.

Notes from Frank Lindsay:

SWARMS: There have been two swarms already – Ngaio and Mt Cook. All swarms collected need to be treated as possible carriers of varroa mite, and therefore should be treated by placing two APISTAN strips in the hive for a month. These strips are available from Trevor Cullen of Caracell, Apiary Supplies, 09 274 7236. BAYVAROL is available from Eckroyds of Christchurch, 03 358 7498.
