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

GGLBA TUESDAY NOVEMBER 10th. 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 November 10th 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.

 

 

Topics for this meeting include:

  • Fall Feeding
  • Fall Varroa Treatment
  • Winter hive prep
  • Your questions

 

————————————————————–

As we move toward fall, honeybee population in the hive begins to fall and Varroa population begins to increase so now (or right after you harvest honey) is a perfect time to treat for Varroa (weather permitting).

————————————————————–

If you have any questions about this meeting, please contact one of the club officers.  We look forward to seeing you there.
