4 Corners Beekeeping Club Monthly Meeting @ Florida Baptist Church near Elmore's store.
Jun 15 @ 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.

Hello Mile Hivers,

April is here and we are already to the time for our April meeting. The Mile Hive will be meeting this WEDNESDAY April 8th from 7-9 at the Mercury Café.

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.
Oct 19 @ 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.
