Dwight will address some topics related to this time of the year: nutrition in dearth, mite treatments in heat, also what you might need to be doing now to prepare those bees for winter. Dwight always stresses the need for raising a local bee population with local queens and splits so he will be mentioning this as well as sharing some insights of his work with feral bee colonies.
