Historic EVENTS in and around Welland


[Welland Tribune, 3 June 1915]

Next to doing a thing yourself, the best way to learn is to see it done. It is one thing to sit in some convention room and hear a man tell how he manages his bees; it is far better to go with him into the apiary and have him show you. That is what you will have a chance to do at the apiary of J.F. Dunn, Ridgeway, Ont., on Tuesday, June 15th, 1915, at 1.30 p.m., sharp.

A qualified apiary instructor sent by the Ontario Department of Agriculture will show how to examine hives for disease, and will actually put a colony through the treatment for cure. Other manifestations will then be shown, such as finding the queen, removing bees from supers, operating to prevent swarming, etc., etc.

Prominent local beekeepers will be asked to take part and assist in the discussion of practical questions. These apiary demonstrations are being held all over Ontario, and it will be well worth your while to attend one.

Ladies are especially invited and all are advised to bring bee veils so they can come right out into the apiary with comfort.
