SIBA General Meeting
May 18, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Our goal for the May cut-out topic and workshop is to show what is involved to get more beekeepers capable of doing cut-outs. The need is high and there are not enough beekeepers who do cut-outs to help us deal with the influx of calls we get from homeowners, and local authorities each year.
Mike Bentz will lead the discussion, show some techniques, and talk about the typical equipment used. Bring your questions!
On Saturday May 20th, join us at Les Johnson's historic house in Aurora, IN while John Lewis and Jason Morgan demonstrate how to cut bees out of a ceiling. This workshop will compliment the Thursday May 18 SIBA meeting.
Take Rt 56 out of Aurora, and turn right on to Hartford Pike, then a quick right on Old SR 56. You'll see the house on the left up on the hill.
Make sure you bring your veil, gloves and any other protective gear. You are free to observe and ask questions... or even participate!
