Hello Western Colorado Beekeepers Association Members and Friends,
To Start the year off right, our first meeting of 2014 will be January 8th at 6:30pm, at the Jockey Club, and will address what beekeepers should be doing right now and planning for spring. We’ll talk about different types of honeybees and ways to obtain bees. We are hoping local beekeepers who have packages, nuks, queens or other supplies will come to the meeting to pass out cards or info. or post on our FB page. We would like to hear from members that have had experience with bees other than Italians or Carniolans. We would also like to hear about members experiences with obtaining bees (how, where, etc.).
Hope to see you all soon!
