Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
Colonies are brooding up, some pollen is appearing on the legs of our favorite insect ladies! As the active season ramps up, please honor the vendors who make the KBC possible. Select the ‘Resources’ tab for supplies, bees and educational offerings.
Free club education continues …
- Wednesday, April 12th on “Swarm Management” with speaker Jason Towers
- Wednesday, May 10th is the next “Honey Bee Academy” on “Frame Management”
- Wednesday, June 14th we have Don Lam speaking on Varroa Mites, Integrated Pest Management
Too numerous to mention, the KBC is appearing at various local events. We appreciate a community that prioritizes pollinators. Longtime sponsor of club activities, Wedel’s Nursery, Floral & Garden is offering their annual spring expo. Look for us there, and if you’d like to be a KBC spokesperson to talk about pollinators, please drop us an email. There are plenty of events in the months ahead and we always need volunteers.
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 form; we’ve found them very responsive and helpful.
They also have many excellent webinars for a variety of issues. Please check them out.
Generous sponsors allow our education to continue. Thank you sponsors!
If you’d like to help support our work, we’d greatly appreciate your tax-deductible contribution. THANK YOU.
