    The club has a Flow hive at the Saxon St site.  I have an electronic hive scale attached and I thought you might be interested to see the data.  Not much nectar coming in at present - Melbourne weather! (although there was a good week Jan 5-12)

    Our Flow hive at Saxon St now has nectar in 4 of the 6 Flow frames.  A second brood box has been added to provide room for the expanding colony.

    The company has now donated us a full hive kit with pitched roof to complement the Flow super and we need some volunteers to assist in assembling and painting this.

    We have now received the set of 18 prepared Apis mellifera microscope slides from America. This valuable resource includes sections of the head and mouthparts, legs, wings and sting as well as details of queen ovaries and drone testis.  In addition smears of Nosema and Bacillus larvae (AFB) are included which will assist in identifying these diseases.

    These slides will be available for study at the microscopy workshop and will be presented at a future club meeting.  Example images can be seen on the information/microscopy page on this website.
