We are excited to inform you that we will be returning to the St. Marys Library for our next meeting and have Alex Zomchek as our guest speaker for September. To celebrate this we will be having food, door prizes, and as always great discussions.

This will also be posted on Facebook so please share the post to spread the word!

Also, it’s time for us to start monitoring our mite counts and Benjamin Keller is taking orders for Formic Pro strips, so if you have an order please email or text him at 419-852-0065 or deerejohn2040@gmail.com.  They are ordered by the dose which is 2 strips.  One dose will be around $9, we hope to get a price break on quantity but it’ll depend on how many preorders he receives.Please let him know by Thursday, August 19 so he can put in the order. He will be ordering a few extra, but if you don’t let him know your order he can’t guarantee he’ll have enough.

GGLBA 2021 FIELD DAY AND CLUB MEETING SATURDAY JUN 12th AT 12:00 PM

Continue your beekeeping education with hands-on demonstrations showing how to light a smoker, inspecting a hive, finding the queen, splitting a hive, and more.

Those wanting to watch the hive demonstrations must wear their veil and gloves to the hive area.

To participate in the smoker lighting contest, bring your smoker, your favorite fuel, and a means to light it (torch, lighter, matches…). Contestants will be judged on ease of lighting, the quality of the smoke, and how long your smoker keeps going.

The event will begin at noon with a carry-in meal. GGLBA will provide sandwiches, table service, and bottled water. Members are asked to bring lawn chairs and a side dish to share.

See you there!

 

We will be having a bee meeting / field day on Saturday June 12th starting at noon and running until 3 to 4 pm at the Mercer County Sportsmen’s Club on 703 across from the old Carter lumber.

GGLBA THURSDAY FEBRUARY 11th. MEETING AT CENTER

TOWNSHIP HALL IN NEPTUNE OHIO 7:00PM-9:00PM

Greetings Greater Grand Lake Beekeepers Association members!

 

GGLBA is planning to have a meeting on February 11th at 7:00 PM – 9PM at Center Township Hall in Neptune Ohio.  Center Township Hall is located at the intersection of US Route 33 and State Route 197.

 

We are honored to host guest speaker Melvin Disselkoen this evening!

Mel Disselkoen was born on a farm in a Dutch settlement in South Dakota. He grew up with an independent farming mentality of hard work and creative problem solving. He has kept bees for over 40 years and is familiar with all facets of beekeeping. Today Mel enjoys observing honeybee behavior and teaching beekeepers how to use his OTS queen rearing method to self-sufficiently reach their objectives.

Mission Statement

Mel Disselkoen strives to identify the natural behaviors and seasonal reproductive cycles of the honeybee and then direct those behaviors toward a profitable objective.

“Since honeybee behavior is naturally directed towards survival and increase, beekeepers can adapt their management and business models to the honeybee’s natural instincts so that stress is minimized and performance is optimized. By working within this philosophy of cooperating with nature, I have found that the best bee is the bee that can overwinter in your area.”

-Mel Disselkoen
