Feral Honey Bees

June 26 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

Did you know that bees are not native to the Americas? How did they become such an integrated part of our society? We need bees. Yet the bees in the wild don’t get the recognition they deserve.

Feral colonies have such a grand well of knowledge to share and so few take the time to study and understand them. Most research is based around the common langstroth hive and how to make the bees produce more honey and pollinate more plants.

This evening I will discuss my experience with the natural hive and the how the feral bees thrive. How this knowledge can be applied to your hobby and some modifications that can be done to help our own bees.

Meeting will be in person at The Kaufman Family Farm (address below)
beekeeper fellowship is the single greatest learning environment and I encourage all to attend in person.
you can also attend via Zoom.

Update on the Fire:
The fire was Tuesady (6-13-23) morning about 5:30am after I parked my truck at 9am the day before.
The truck is gone, it was towed away this week.
I was only able to salvage a ring of keys, a handful of hive tools, my hammer, a few other solid steel items (I am still waiting to see if the temper of the steel was affected) and two halves of extension cords. essentially it was a total loss. Insurance will only cover the truck itself (they have not yet given me any idea of price) but none of the contents. The contents not covered, if I were to buy new today are valued at $15,287 (tax included) so I have a lot of catching up to do.
great thing as it is, a fellow beekeeper set up a gofundme to help raise money to replace my equipment.
