Meeting Overview

Chemistry of Bees:
Jim McCaulley will fascinate us with the chemistry of bees! Included in his talk will be the chemicals that are produced by bees, the chemicals found in the environment, and the chemicals that we use within our beekeeping repertoire. You are sure to be enlightened with Jim's presentation.

As winter is upon us, it is time to start thinking about preparing to feed your bees in early Spring. This month's discussion will focus on feeding supplements available to you, as well as those you can make at home. Also under consideration will be winter nutrition and what can be done if your bees need additional food in the winter months.

Hope you can attend.
