Upcoming Event: Monthly Club Meeting

When: Tuesday, October  24, 2017,  7:00 pm

Where: Bristol Aggie High School Auditorium


The club will be presenting a video presentation of Samuel Ramsey's talk he gave at our August Beekeepers Seminar.

Sam is a graduate student at the University of Maryland's Bee Lab.  His research is groundbreaking  in terms of what we thought we knew about Varroa destructor. His discovery that Varroa feeds on the honeybee's fat bodies and not their blood will have a major influence on how we treat for mites in the future.  



Is there a honeybee swarm on your property and would like it removed?
