Happy Beeks! I am hearing from my people here in SW Colorado that their hives are bursting at the seams, and they are thinking about when to split them. Yes, we want to split before the bees decide to swarm, but not too early. Remember that the drones needed to mate the new queens need to be 3 weeks older than she is. When you start to see capped drone cells in your hives, then you can plan to split those super-full ones. There aren't even dandelions here yet. Also remember that your new baby queen needs to be well fed, meaning that there should be a good flow starting as well. ... See MoreSee Less

If you are looking for an electric fence from the State of Colorado, here's how you see if you can get one...call the Parks and Wildlife Office in your county. Ask them for the name of the wildlife officer for your area. Then call him and tell him you need an electric fence to keep the bears out of your bees. This decision is totally up to the officer for your area. Don't even bother telling the Parks and Wildlife office why you want to speak to your area officer. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm using this trick more for the birds than the bees right now, but this spring, when we have cool night and warm days, it will be a big help to your bees. In the morning, clean the ash out of your wood stove and place in a metal bucket out in your yard (10 ft from anything flammable). Place a heavy pizza pan on top of the bucket, and fill with warm water. It will stay warm, or at least not frozen, all day. ... See MoreSee Less

Spring is the most dangerous time of year for bees, starvation is lurking around the corner. Check your bees! If you are feeding dry sugar on top of the frames, make sure it is damp enough. Bees can't use dry sugar, and this winter has been so dry, my sugar is staying dry, too. Spritz with water on a warm day, be quick! ... See MoreSee Less

About CSBA

The state association was organized in Denver in 1880 by J.L. Peabody, E. Milleson and Olive Wright. It was incorporated as the Colorado State Beekeepers’ Association in 1888 and is affiliated with the American Beekeeping Federation. The CSBA is the oldest and most widely recognized beekeeping organization in Colorado.

The CSBA functions as an umbrella organization for all other regional beekeeping organizations and clubs in the State. In addition, the CSBA is also the only organization in Colorado that represents the concerns and interests of the commercial beekeeping sector.

The CSBA functions as the main interface between State and local agencies and beekeepers.

All dues and monies collected by the CSBA go towards educational and associated social functions at meetings. The high level of cutting-edge information available at CSBA meetings often provides one of the only opportunities for local beekeepers to learn about events and concerns within the larger beekeeping community.
