I don’t always post other people’s Newsletters. but once in a while they are worth sharing if they contain some useful and practical information.

I thought I would share this Newsletter as it demonstrates how to conduct a sugar shake.

April is sugar shake month and we do this to our hives to detect pests like Varroa. But, don’t be alarmed, Australia is still Varroa free. However, if we all undertake such tests we will be able to detect it early and therefore have a better chance of eradicating it before it takes hold.

I hope you find this useful.
