Fall Management Guide
September 22nd marks the first day of fall - The Autumnal Equinox. The days are getting shorter and leaves are beginning to drift from the trees. As summer turns to fall it is time to consider the potential options for getting hives closed down for the season.

Hive Monitoring System Update
The Arnia hive monitoring system is in and we'll deploy it in the early spring. We are going to take a little time to get acclimated to its parts and pieces so we set it up correctly. It will be setup in a trial mode prior to full deployment to get accustomed to how it works - kind of like a trial run. If we have something to show in advance to spring 2017 we'll share with the membership.
We want to give a special thanks to David Waldman who has been instrumental in getting us this far and has done the legwork to research and procure the system. Thanks David!
