State Aparist Wade Stiltner instructs WCBA members
The WCBA held its June meeting on last week at the farm of Larry and Marianne Siers. The outing was well attended by the WCBA members.
Wade Stiltner, State Apiarist, gave a live demonstration on the proper bee hive inspection technique, and answered all of the many questions the WCBA members posed to him.
After the presentation, thanks was given by Larry Siers and the members enjoyed a delicious buffet style luncheon. The meal was accompanied by a drawing for door prizes many of which were graciously provided by the hosts, Larry and Marianne.
