class and inspection

Saturday (tomorrow) is the last class of the Forsyth County Beekeeping lectures. We have a practical test and paper test in 2 weeks. I am not worried in the least.

I am going to have to duck out a tad early tomorrow, since class runs about 1 hour long. I will do a full inspection around lunch and I will try to get some pictures. It will be short, sweet and to the point. I have to fly at 2:00 for a helicopter egg drop where I am flying the helicopter in to drop easter eggs over a field for children to hunt.

I can tell by the amount of wax scales I have seen on the IPM mite board that they are just about done with the last empty frame. There are a ton of scales on the board under that outer most frame. I am betting I get to add a super and move some brood around tomorrow!

I am going to head to bed now. I will post pics and an update tomorrow, post inspection and class.
