I've been charged with compiling and writing parts of our club newsletter. Last month was my first edition and it got a total revamp with new graphics, layout and some informative short articles. I'm trying to keep it around 4-5 articles that are pertinent to totally new beeks and well as those that are on their second or third season. Beyond that I'm not sure a half page article is going to be of much use for beeks with years of experience. One of the things I want to have every edition is a DIY article of some sort that fits with the season. Last month I did a DIY on making candy boards with some recipes and there was an article on emergency winter feeding. I think those two articles were very well received, got lots of comments from more experienced members. I'm having trouble with a DIY topic for this month. The articles include choosing woodenware, deep vs medium, 8-frame vs 10-frame etc, another article on cleaning up a deadout, one on stimulative feeding with pollen patties and 1:1 syrup, I'm also thinking about an article on locating your hives and what to think about. Any ideas on a DIY article? I want it to be simple to do with hand tools or basic power tools.
