Question and Answer
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 what we should be doing with our bees.
