Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, September 13, at the Kill Devil Hills Library starting at 7:00 p.m. Please remember, the Library asks that we not bring food or drinks due to their new carpet, and they do lock their front door at 7:00 so if you arrive after then please follow the sidewalk along the left side of the building to the back door.
Our guest speaker will be our region’s NC Department of Agriculture Apiary Inspector, Adolphus Leonard! Adolphus will be addressing the subject of preparing a beehive for winter, what exactly is going on while the bees “cluster” for winter (cluster dynamics), and will include a Question & Answer session regarding ANY AND ALL questions you have!
Here is your chance to get personalized advice from an Expert in the Field!! It has been awhile since we have had Adolphus visit, and he has a WEALTH of knowledge. Bring any and all questions regarding anything related to honey bees. Hesitant to raise your hand to ask? We all know that feeling, so we will also have a “question jar” on hand where you can submit them in writing prior to the meeting start. Additionally, if you can’t be present at the meeting, feel free to forward your questions to me and I will ask them for you!
We’ll also include our usual raffle, so please bring any items you’d like to donate (bee related or otherwise) and/or some dollars to donate toward a ticket to win!
Hope to see you next Wednesday, Sept. 13!
