Getting Your Bees Ready for Winter
Field Day 2021
Hello to the greatest beekeeping organization in the history of beekeeping!
For all you newbees, now that the class is over, your bees are installed and you’re actually
keeping bees, hopefully. If you had it to do over, what would you ask the instructor of your classes now???
Well you have that chance, this month/week we will have the class instructors all in one room and you can critique the information, ask further questions, or “Now what” questions of what your experience has been to date.
Don't forget we start early in the bee yard with Randy and Gene at 6:15, if I'm not mistaken there is talk about a two queen system starting in the bee yard this month, be there and find out the how-to's of this type of bee keeping and why?
Don't forget the greatest Field Day in America is June 5th - there are changes in the scheduling
still being discussed and we should know more by this Friday. Also LCBA is planning the greatest/biggest beekeeping even in the history of beekeeping to be held on Sept. 11th at the Lorain County Fair Grounds and I know you do not want to miss this event, The End of Summer Classic, stay tuned it's going to be the biggest swarming episode ever. Your board is stopping at nothing to make this memorable for everyone in beekeeping.
See You Friday night!
