Microscopy Interest Day at Hatch End

Any HBKA member interested in looking at pollen and making slides of pollen samples, Danuta and Jo will be at the apiary from 10 until 12 on Sat 16th July. If you have a compound microscope then you are welcome to come along and bring it too. There will need to be a limit of 15 maximum so it will be those who make contact first. Priority will be given to those who have not been able to attend other sessions before or those with microscopes who are hoping to take the interest further.

It is good for variety if you are able to bring along your own pollen samples.These may be  taken directly from the flower stamens OR collected from your bees and kept in dry or frozen conditions until the day. Colour and date at time of collection are helpful in identification.

Please contact Jo if you wish to attend.
