* The June meeting of the ACBA for 2016 was held on Thursday, June 9, 2016 at the Ashe County Cooperative Extension Office, Ashe County Center, 134 Government Circle, Jefferson, NC 28640.

* The ACBA President, Randy Baldwin covered a variety of topics about hive management, including information on how to recognize and prevent chalk brood. See the attached photographs which show chalky debris that can appear on the landing board of a hive that is experiencing chalk brood - which is usually the result of too much moisture in a hive - and a box which Randy designed that contains wood shavings that can help reduce moisture.
