Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
May 12 Club Meeting, 7:00 p.m., online: Swarm season is upon us! Dave Elsen, from the Brown County Beekeepers in Green Bay, will “zoom” in to share how to capture swarms and swarm calls, and what to do with a captured swarm.
Swarm catching is great fun, but not if they’re your bees! Prevention is best; we STRONGLY recommend Dr. Milbrath’s robust paper on management.
Make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter so you receive log-in details a day or so prior.
Need bees, supplies, equipment? Check out our ever-changing page on vendors, under the ‘Resources’ tab.
We continue to try and answer questions as received, but there’s another great resource–the experts at Michigan State University! You can ask questions via this easy-to-use forum; we’ve found them very responsive and helpful.
They also have many excellent webinars for a variety of issues. Please check them out.
If you’d like to help support our work, we’d greatly appreciate your tax-deductible contribution. THANK YOU.
