Hello LCBA Members!

As much as we would (all) like to attend something, anything away from our residence, it
appears we are still stuck with small meetings of 10 or less members. So that means no regular meeting again this month. However, your executives are still busy planning events for
an eventual meeting of the LCBA membership. The LCBA Field Day is still a go June 6th with
all our speakers on board. We’ve been working the memorial bee yard, the two colonies
are monsters! We’ve split one colony 3 ways and it looks as though not one bees was removed. That means we removed 15 frames of bees and brood, and it looks as though we
added bees instead at the last look May 5th.

This week, the 8th, Barb Bloetscher will do a virtual meeting for all LCBA members - hope
you plan to join in, see instructions/directions/information/details in this Buzz. Usually we
have no meeting in June after the Field Day events, but this year, June the 12th we plan to
have an outdoor meeting at Life Church, our normal meeting place which is open to all. It
will take place in the LCBA Gallagher Memorial Bee Yard and we want to especially invite
all our new beekeepers to attend and participate in a hands on class! Remember to bring
your veils, (is a must.) Pay attention to the LCBA web-site and Facebook for any notices/
updates etc. This month is cold, and not the best beekeeping weather, but beekeepers are
making it work, watch for swarms and treat for mites.

New beekeepers we are here to help if you have question, ask, on our web-site or Facebook,
call LCBA officers we only know what you need if you ask or inquire, see you soon.


Lorain County Beekeepers Association located in the "heart of it all", Lorain County, Ohio. LCBA was founded in 1919 as a non-profit organization committed to educating the public about the value of honeybees and the impact honeybees have on our world.
