Monthly General Meeting
March 21, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Jim Orem will be speaking on the topic of swarm catching and swarm traps. Jim is known as the authority on swarm catching here at SIBA and each year, we ask him to update us on what is new. He has a regular regimen of making rounds to 40+ swarm traps he has spread out around the area and catching so many, he often has a surplus that he sees into the hands of new beekeepers getting started.
There really is an ideal size and location for a swarm trap. Jim will tell you how you can improve your success on trapping swarms. Free local bees are the best bees you can get, so don't miss this one!
