Michael and Phillip are on the research staff of UT’s Entomology and Plant Pathology Department and work closely with Dr. John Skinner, the state apiculturalist. This will be an informative session you won’t want to miss.

If you have questions about what your bees are doing this time of year, the next BCBA meeting would be a great place to get some answers.

As always, our meetings are free and open to the public. Invite a friend to come along with you. Even if the friend isn’t interested in becoming a beekeeper, we always have lively, friendly discussions about our bees.
