Overwintering Honeybee Hives @ The Hudson Gardens & Event Center
Sep 9 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Learn what happens to honeybees during their “dormant” winter months and what you can do to carry your hives successfully into the next season. Hudson Gardens’ Lead Beekeeper Bob Shiflet will help you discover how to assess the strength of your colony and determine the appropriate amount of honey stores your hive will need the upcoming winter months. Supplemental feeding, including when and how to feed, will be explained. You’ll discover the various methods available for protecting your hives from wind and cold temperatures, and how each method impacts honeybees. The course will conclude with a discussion of winter pest management techniques and an off-season “to-do” list for improving your beekeeping knowledge and skills. Experience level: Beginner. Advanced registration required. Register online – www.hudsongardens.org or call (303) 797-8565 ext. 306

https://gallery.mailchimp.com/faab5d795f2a24e9abc494c09/files/Directions_to_Rox_Comm_Cntr.pdf

Angela Kantola will be our guest speaker telling us what she has learned about the “Flow Hive” that everyone is ga-ga over. Then Laura Phillips will give us our Epi-Pen Training for the year. This training is recommended for all club members.

We will also discuss the new swarm phone system being implemented by the Colorado State Beekeepers Association and the fact that they have 501c3 status available to use if we choose to use it.

4 Corners Beekeeping Club Monthly Meeting @ Florida Baptist Church near Elmore's store.
Sep 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

[We meet every 3rd Monday except for November and December]

This is your last minute reminder about the club meeting this Monday evening, May 18th, at the Florida Baptist Church at 6 PM. Our new member, Valerie West is going to share how she learned to make a nuc for the purpose of growing new queens for yourself. This is a skill we all need, and there is more to it than just putting a couple of frames in a box. As we are just learning, queen age is a major factor in bees swarming, and if we can learn to grow new, good quality queens for ourselves, we can greatly reduce the swarming impulse in our bees. We’ll also talk a bit about how to know if your stock is of good genetic quality. Plus, we’ll have a good visit with our fellow beeks, and get the answer to that vexing conundrum in your bee yard. Obviously, we’ll need to talk about some new board members, too. Come and find out what is going on! We are growing! Think about what you can do to help. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

High Land Beekeeping Club Meeting @ Roxborough Community Center
Mar 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

This Thursday, March 19, 2015, is our monthly bee club meeting!

The meeting is from 6-8 p.m. at the Roxborough Community Center, directions below.

https://gallery.mailchimp.com/faab5d795f2a24e9abc494c09/files/Directions_to_Rox_Comm_Cntr.pdf

Angela Kantola will be our guest speaker telling us what she has learned about the “Flow Hive” that everyone is ga-ga over. Then Laura Phillips will give us our Epi-Pen Training for the year. This training is recommended for all club members.

We will also discuss the new swarm phone system being implemented by the Colorado State Beekeepers Association and the fact that they have 501c3 status available to use if we choose to use it.

All and all, it should be a very informative meeting. Bring a treat if you like and we’ll all share.

4 Corners Beekeeping Club Monthly Meeting @ Florida Baptist Church near Elmore's store.
Mar 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

[We meet every 3rd Monday except for November and December]

This is your last minute reminder about the club meeting this Monday evening, May 18th, at the Florida Baptist Church at 6 PM. Our new member, Valerie West is going to share how she learned to make a nuc for the purpose of growing new queens for yourself. This is a skill we all need, and there is more to it than just putting a couple of frames in a box. As we are just learning, queen age is a major factor in bees swarming, and if we can learn to grow new, good quality queens for ourselves, we can greatly reduce the swarming impulse in our bees. We’ll also talk a bit about how to know if your stock is of good genetic quality. Plus, we’ll have a good visit with our fellow beeks, and get the answer to that vexing conundrum in your bee yard. Obviously, we’ll need to talk about some new board members, too. Come and find out what is going on! We are growing! Think about what you can do to help. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

The SouthEast Beekeepers Club is a fairly unstructured group of beekeeping people who get together once a month to share information, ask questions, get news, etc. Other than having a pot luck prior to and during the meeting, we don’t have an agenda.

We have no dues. Everyone is welcome, all you need is an interest in bees.
