Disease inspection demonstrations were held at the Doora Apiary on Saturday 30th April last. Weather conditions were ideal. Members of the association from all over the county attended and it was deemed to be a very successful venture. Participants completed an online questionnaire afterwards providing valuable feedback for the EDIBEE Team. Many thanks to Cliff Deegan for doing the demonstrations and to the members who attended.
