Message from the Queen Bee

Beekeepers of Volusia County, we will be at the ag center for this Wednesday for our regular meeting. I will have a presentation about some interesting bee farming that we learned about while traveling in Texas and Kansas to show you.

We had penciled in a speaker from UF, I think the time was not available. I do have some other items to go over.

We will be meeting in person this month. Since there are not as many people collecting in the room and there is plenty of space, it should be safe for everyone. Wear your mask if you feel better about attending that way, but please attend.

Marlin will begin a new Hive detective portion and will go over good practices for pulling honey during the honey flow season.

See you at 6:30 on 6-23-21. Volusia County Ag Center.
