All the buzz you need to get…about and for BeeKeepers

HCBA  August Meeting – Monday August 16th 7pm

Here is the link for the meeting.
Join Zoom Meeting

We have our monthly meeting August 16th, 7pm at the County Extension Office in Jackson Park.

Well, the fun with Covid continues.  Our speaker found out he was exposed late last week and is not feeling so great today.  He is back on the schedule  for October.  As a backup plan, we have asked our September speaker to fill in but have not heard back so we will give you a little info about my experience with single deep  management,  oxalic acid treatment options as well as Formic Pro as well as anything else on your mind.
Come on out.
See you tonight.
To be held at the Cooperative Extension Office at 100 Jackson Park Rd. in Hendersonville on Monday August 16th at 7 PM.   See ya then.

Next Apiary Session –  ?

Our Apiary Sessions are held at Historic Johnson Farm located at 3346 Haywood Rd, Hendersonville, NC 28791.  Click HERE for a map. The entrance by the sign is usually closed on Saturday and Sunday so use the exit and park in front of the Interpretive Center.  The Apiary is in the back of the property so walk down the driveway and we should be in behind the equipment barn on the left.

Two  ideas: 1) Your mentor is probably going into his or her hives right now  and maybe you could go over to his or her apiary and at least observe if not help.  2) If you are able and willing to attend an apiary session on a weekday, and you haven’t let us know yet, please drop a quick note to info@hcbeekeepers and let us know.  Maybe we could work something out.
