Do you have a honey bee swarm? If you are not sure refer to our Bee ID page. There is more useful information about honey bees on this web page. If they are honey bees, call one of our member Swarm Catchers for swarm removal. PLEASE Do not spray them. Thank you.
Vice president Geoff Hultgren and daughter Frances participating in the Warren County 4H clinic. They are answering questions of 4Hers considering the beekeeping project.
Another educational and enjoyable meeting for local beekeepers. The Q&A session helped answer almost a dozen questions from new beekeepers. John Favaron covered important aspects of package installation.
Thank you Terry Liberman-Smith for your post.
With a new year comes new officers. Our 2019 club officers, voted in at the December meeting are as follows:
President – Paul Dorger
Vice President – Geoff Hultgren
Treasurer – Keith Mealy

Let’s all welcome them and thank them for stepping up for the club.
Thank you!: what a wonderful gathering! Welcome to all the new beekeepers and a “Nice to see you!” to the experienced beekeepers.
Presentation: About a dozen different beekeepers presented short, focused Best practices presentation. It was a refreshing presentation.
Volunteer Opportunities: Refreshment sign-ups w Anne Richardson. Sign up and share the responsibility one month with another beekeeper. Mentoring/being Mentored: We are in process of completing a mentor/mentee application. We will post it as soon as we have it done. We always need more Mentors so even if you have only been keeping bees for a year, volunteer to help a neighbor do their first hive inspections or plan their monitoring calendar or help them spot the queen. It’s a nice way to meet folks who share your interest in beekeeping.
The Beezette newsletters can be found under the Resources tab beginning February 2019.
Thank You! So many folks pitch in for the school so its a fun day: Organizers, Set Up, registrations, donations of food/coffee, clean up: thank you for helping 35 new beekeepers succeed!
