Thursday, April 10 — It’s almost time for our first regular meeting of 2014! We will be discussing swarm control–both preventing and catching, plus various hive splitting methods. Join us at the GVSU – Meijer Campus (515 S. Waverly Road, Holland) at 7PM. The HABA board will be meeting prior at 6PM and club members are welcome. Hope to see you there!
Grand Rapids Carpool — Jamie is wondering if those in the Grand Rapids area would consider riding together to HABA meetings. Email me if you are interested and I’ll pass along contact information.
Here are some links you may want to check out this weekend:
My family and I recently had the opportunity to visit Randy in Florida where he was assisting a fellow beekeeper and friend, Steve Cantu, of Cantu Apiaries. We were graciously welcomed to his fine facility and had a wonderful visit. The peek into beekeeping on a commercial level was very interesting and the buzzing honeybees were lovely to witness after our long winter. We were even given a chance to sample almond honey! (I wouldn’t recommend it – LOL)
See you Thursday!
