A club poll was conducted factoring everyone present at the meeting in regards to bee colonies alive in the Fall versus colonies overwintering and surviving. Our club only experienced a 25% loss as apposed to upwards of 80% statewide in Ohio. This is a wonderful success for our club!
Guest OSBA speaker Jamie Walters president of Black Swamp Beekeepers Association in Defiance Ohio presented an excellent segment to our club about Hobbyist Queen Rearing. This information will greatly assist in keeping vibrant and productive bee colonies to those of us that don’t have large apiaries.
